A beautiful natural insect repellent
This jar is packed full of natural insect repellent essential oils that comes together to produce a pleasant smelling balm. Many customers that suffer from sensitive skin conditions find they can use this balm without irritation. A wonderful NZ (local) beeswax is used which is really nourishing and healing for your skin.
For generations all over the world different cultures have been using the essential oils of plants to repel mosquitos and other biting insects. Even to this day up in the mountains of Rarotonga, they use a fruit called 'Noni' on their skin to repel the mosquitos. If they get too over whelming they then whack them away with branches from the peppermint plant. (The oil of the peppermint plant is actually used in this balm!)
So not only were plants used 'back in the day' but are still being used all over the world just as effectively or more than the commercial sprays we use today!
