We’ve been making this Insect Repellent using ingredients from nature for over 10 years.
Usage Tips: We’ve found the best way to use it is to apply it directly to your heat points, behind your ears, wrists, the backs of your knees and your ankles. Depending on how active you are, you may like to reapply after several hours. The reason for this is that essential oils evaporate and emit their fragrance from the body’s heat points, which is what gives you the protection.
Ingredients: We make it in small batches using essential oils of Certified Organic Citronella, Tea tree, Lavender from nearby Mount Darragh and Saarinen Organics’ all-natural cream base that we make from scratch. We have also added a fresh herbal infusion of Chamomile, Calendula and Nettle. Click on “additional information” to the left for the full ingredients list.
A Note from Kay: When I first put this into production I gave it to a family of four to trial on their trek into the very buggy wilderness of the NT. They used it along their 3-day hike and were very happy that they could use this sweet smelling cream and didn’t have to use any commercial spray, they were soon lending it around the campfire for others to try.
