An all natural insect repellent. Although this ointment may smell nice to us, it doesn’t to all those biting, pesky insects. Rub on all exposed parts of the body to deter mosquitos, sand flies and other little bugs. You can also apply this natural insect repellent to soothe bites, due to its calming and antiseptic properties. However, for a stronger anti-itch and soothing effect, I recommend our Itch Kalm.


Citronella oil
Citronella oil is extracted from a resilient grass (Cymbopogon nardus) native to Sri Lanka and Java. It is credited with having therapeutic properties as an antiseptic, deodorant, insecticide, parasitic, tonic and as a stimulant. Nonetheless, most people will associate it with its insecticide properties. Citronella oil repels insects rather than kills them by masking scents that are attractive to them.

Lemongrass Oil
Lemongrass is extracted from the leaves of the lemongrass plant (Cymbopogon flexuosus) and the powerful, citrus scent can deter mosquitos and bugs

Eucalyptus oil
Eucalyptus oil is extracted from the leaves and twigs of the eucalyptus plant, which originates from tropical northeastern Australia. The strong smelling oil along with its antiseptic properties, make it a useful additive to our Away Bugs ointment

Neem Oil
Neem oil is taken from the pressed seed kernels of the Neem tree, which originated in India. Neem tree (Azadirachta indica) translates into: “The Free Tree Of India” and has been used traditionally for many centuries. In India it is known as “the village pharmacy”. It is used to deter all sorts of insects, mosquitos, bugs, fleas and mites.

Lavender oil
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is the most versatile of all essential oils. It’s healing, soothing, antiseptic and analgesic properties make it the first choice for minor burns and wounds, itchy bites and aggravated skin conditions.

Organic Beeswax
Beeswax is used in our Away Bugs ointment for its protective, soothing and anti-itch properties, as well as for making the ointment thicker

Organic Olive oil
Olive oil is chosen as a carrier oil for our Away Bugs for its hypo allergenic and moisturising properties.


Apply to exposed areas of the body. Reapply every 2-3 hours. Store out of direct sunlight.


For preventing mosquito, sand fly and other insect bites.

    Was camping in Northland over Xmas and the mozzies were horrendous. This kept me and the kids itch free 🙂
