Many plant essential oils repel insects naturally. Plants don’t like insects any more than we do! Our Napiers essential oil blend has been used in Scotland for thirty years. Here we have the renowned Scottish midge, as well as more exotic mosquitoes and gnats! We also find that plant oils are disliked by non-biting but annoying insects such as bluebottles, flies and wasps, helping to keep them away.   

 As summer skins are often sunburned too, our Bugbuster Outdoor Cream also contains soothing Chickweed oil and cooling Aloe Vera. An added bonus from our lovely, thoughtful herbalists who formulated this cream.
