Deet is toxic and scary!!! We've created an insect repellent to keep mozzies and other annoying bugs out of your personal zone this summer so you can enjoy the beach, river, bbq's and every other outdoor activity you love. Lemon eucalyptus has long been used in China as an effective insect repellent. A study in Africa (on humans) showed it was as effective as Deet at repelling the main malaria-carrying mosquito. This repellent also contains other bug-repelling essential oils, plus peppermint which is cooling and lavender which is skin-loving.
NB: Patch test on inner arm first. Not for use on babies or children under 3 - (essential oils are natural and therefore safer than chemicals, but babies and infants can have sensitivities to different ingredients, and these oils are strong).
Fabula products are handmade and contain NO synthetic fragrances, sulphates, parabens or harmful colours.
