Awesome natural repellant, we used it for the first time over on the coast, sandflys were biting then once applied , they were no more . Smells fabulous too.
Have taken tramping in Fijordland, fishing in Southland and Otago, and on the South Coast. No sandfly bites! It does have to be applied fairly regularly to maintain it's strength, but it's NOT HARMFUL to Tech fabrics or fishing line (unlike DEET). This is a welcome sigh of relief! And it IS NOT a cancer causing chemical! Just buy it.
warning - you do smell a bit like a hippie/citronella candle :)
I haven’t met an Everkind product I didn’t love, and this one is no exception. As a person often attacked by biting bugs in the summer, I have tried a variety of natural repellents over the years, and I would say this one pretty much tops the list! It works, and I don’t have to slather it all over to keep the bites away; just a few strokes does the trick. Also, it’s not so greasy that it stains clothing, not so sticky that it attracts a thick coat of dust and sand. Plus it smells lovely, but not overwhelming. Truly the perfect repellent!
Tested this out on my summer holiday. Same place I go every year and every year I come home with so many insect bites. But not this year! This stuff is amazing and it smells so good. You don’t need much just a few swipes on the arms and legs. Other members of my family were getting bitten and eventually they were all asking to use my Everkind repellant since it worked so well! Such a good product and I’ll be using this to fight off the insects every summer from now on!
I purchased this as a gift for my daughter, she absolutely loves it! Highly recommend .
