Summer is coming and I'm guessing that Stevie is lucky enough to share my delicious tasting blood which means only one thing.... mozzies.

Bug Balm is a natural insect balm that uses essential plant oils to help repel mosquitoes & bugs without harsh chemicals. A soothing blend of organic butters & oils with a slightly earthy, woodsy undertone to balance the zest of the citronella. Formulated for me, someone who is always extra tasty to bugs & tested in tropical mosquitoes loving conditions, it works a treat!

Small batch made by hand mindfully on the Northern Beaches of Sydney using only the ingredients needed, not a peep more. These balms are 80% organic with ingredients sourced locally where possible. Completely free from DEET, toxins, aluminium, parabens, talcs, palm oils, or other nasty stuff, it’s proudly vegan & cruelty-free.

How to use Bug Balm

Warm tube briefly in hands & push firmly from the bottom, leaving a few mm’s of balm peeking out.  Apply sparingly, warming against the skin to areas bugs enjoy. Keep in a cool area out of direct heat. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.

This contains essential oils so it is best to avoid use on children under 2 years of age

Packaging - End of Life

100% Plastic Free, our recycled paperboard tubes are home compostable or recyclable. When it’s finished pop it straight into your home compost, worm farm or dug a hole & bury it snuggly in the soil. As a last resort add it your paper recycling bin.

Labels have been printed using 100% recycled, non-chlorine bleached, alternative fibre papers, organic-based non-toxic inks and solar power to further reduce environmental impacts.
