Q: What are the best places to apply this Bug-off Balm?

A: We like to put a small amount around our ankles, wrists, and neckline. This helps to create a small circle of protection, keeping the bugs from stopping by.

Q: How much should I use?

A: You don't need much, to find it effective. We scrape just a small amount (not even pea size) and rub that on ankles, wrists, and neckline. You can always add more if you feel you need it.

Q: What if I already have a bunch of mosquito bites?

A: We can help with that too! We have two options, you can use our Itch Stop Serum, or if you are feeling DIY you can use Bentonite Clay to reduce the itch (we even have a recipe card you can download!)

Q: Do you have an easy way to take these on the go?

A: We sure do! Tin Holders were custom made just for us, and hold both this 1 oz size as well as a .5 oz size tin.
