Forget winter, summer is finally coming. But just when we thought it was safe to bare our arms again, there’s a familiar buzz in the air. Avoid both the flying nasties and the nasty sprays by using a natural mossie repellent instead.
Here are the best natural mosquito repellents for the whole family to use.
Bring out your inner magician and disappear from mozzies with this clever wristband. The wearable pellets diffuse a blend of seven essential plant oils to mask your scent so the buzz brigade doesn’t even know you’re there.
Pellets last for 15 days, and since they don’t come into contact with your skin they’re good for pregnant women, young children and anyone prone to skin allergies and irritations.
Once known as Bugger Off (can you think of a better Aussie name?), the now more-PC-named repellent is an aloe vera-based spray containing citronella, lavender, lemon myrtle, peppermint and sage essential oils.
Lemon Myrtle Fragrances
Using only the highest quality natural ingredients, this spray helps to soothe irritation and redness and is incredibly gentle on children’s skin.
This handy roll-on makes it great for mums on the go. Slip it in your bag and never be without it when the mozzies attack. Natural mossie repellent, sorted.
A simple spray that keeps mossies away. With just one active ingredient (Melaleuca oil) the highly effective formula protects against pesky insects for up to 3 hours and is gentle on those with sensitive skin too.

Made from a combination of organic essential oils, this natural bug spray protects wee ones from nasty mosquito and insect bites. Thanks to calming and cooling oils such as lavender and spearmint, it also relieves bites and stings if the skin has been exposed.
As the name suggests, this repellent is a blend of organic goodies including citronella oil, soya bean oil and cocoa butter. It works on mosquitoes, leeches, ticks, ants, fleas, mites and nits, and is available in a baby-friendly version with only half the amount of essential oils.
