Basta Bug Balm is a natural organic insect repellent. This topical remedy has the same herbal base as the Savvy Salves. All the herbs are certified organic and grown on our farm. These include plantain, comfrey, calendula, yarrow, sage, rosemary, pine, marshmallow root, lemon balm and peppermint. The salves are steeped in six kinds of organic carrier oils for several months in the sunshine to insure a complete infusion of the herbs into the oils. After straining out the herbal matter, the infused oils are heated with organic beeswax and USDA certified organic essential oils of lemongrass, citronella, lavender and eucalyptus. The advantages of the bug balm are that it can be used on the face and around the eyes safely and without irritation. It works well to apply on exposed skin before going outside. Then later in the evening, it combines well with the bug spray on skin and on clothes if bugs are extra tenacious.
The bug balm has traveled around the world with different clients. They’ve come back to report how well it worked in various bug infested areas with a whole variety of pests including no-see-‘um’s in New Zealand, to tropical mosquitoes in South America, to the mosquitoes of our Sierra Nevada back country.
The bug balm is tried and true and it’s all organic!
