When we started making our lovely soaps in Cyprus, this one very quickly became a best-seller. Use it on holiday, to help keep mossies away the natural way; or use it in the UK whilst fishing, walking or camping to help keep pesky midges away.
We start with our lovely soap base & add insect-repelling essential oils of citronella, lemongrass & tea tree. There’s also soothing Aloe Vera (to help relieve the itch of existing bites) and cocoa butter & glycerine to moisturise dry, itchy skin.
Use this in the shower in the evening, & you really can smell the insect-repelling essential oils on your skin afterwards; and if you can smell them, so can the biting bugs.
Some key ingredients ;
Coconut Oil; Gives this soap a rich, creamy lather.
Lemongrass essential oil;With a fresh, uplifting scent, & anti- bacterial, antiseptic, healing and soothing properties. It’s also a great insect repellant for mosquitos. (And fleas, ticks and lice).
Citronella essential oil; The best-known of all the insect repellant essential oils, used in particular for mosquitos. (It also has anti-septic properties.)
Tea Tree essential oil; Highly antiseptic, this is used to disinfect and soothe bites and stings.
Aloe Vera extract;Used in the Mediterranean region for thousands of years, we’ve added this for its natural cooling & soothing properties.
