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, camping or at festivals, to help keep pesky midges away.
We start with our lovely soap base and add insect-repelling essential oils of citronella, lemongrass and tea tree. There’s also soothing Aloe Vera (to help relieve the itch of existing bites) and cocoa butter and glycerine to moisturise dry, itchy skin.
Use this in the shower in the evening, and you really can smell the insect-repelling essential oils on your skin afterwards; and if you can smell them, so can the biting bugs.
