Once you've learned how absorbent human skin is, you don't want to spraying yourself and your children with chemicals to prevent insect bites. With summer right upon us and the rains already started, mosquitoes are on the rise.
The good news is that Supersalve's organic All-Care Balm serves brilliantly as a mosquito repellent. It's powerful ingredients also soothe the skin in the event of bites before you had a chance to apply the salve as a repellent.
I am a big Supersalve fan
After hardly ever having reacted to mozzie bites, I suddenly started suffering from incredible itchiness after being bitten. So I hauled out my Supersalve and it stopped the itching within 5 minutes. So then I started using it to prevent the bites, which it does!
For a recent trip to the Kruger National Park and other spots, we took 4 jars of Supersalve All-care Balm specifically to use as a mosquito repellant - wouldn’t be without it and got quite desperate when it looked like our order might not arrive on time, but it did and we wouldn’t have done without it!
I don't seem to get bitten by many other insects, but when I do, I use it and it always helps.
And at the same time, it moisturises my skin extremely well. I'm so pleased it now contains no parabens or harmful mineral oils. When I first started using Supersalve, around 1998 or 99, I hadn't even heard of parabens! Back then, I was using it extensively to soothe the pain of an old ankle injury and it really worked. Ever since, I have always used it for any joint ache or pain, as well as for bruising. - Lynn
