  • Sale
  • £11

We hate getting bothered by insects but even more than that we hate poisoning the natural landscapes we've come to enjoy by using DEET based  insect repellents. Thats why we were so excited to test out WIlma's Natural Insect repellent and its great. The smell is really intense and rich and organic and it doesn't leave the skin feeling burnt or dry.
However, it is probably also excellent at staining white clothes (being made of tar from trees), so use with caution!
Wilma's natural products are made in the forest region of Swedish Lapland utilising the old knowledge and techniques that have been used for centuries by the forest people who have lived and worked there.
Tried and tested natural remedies and products are produced in accordance with traditional methods.
Since the middle of the last century Beckolja (tar oil) has been used by the inhabitants of Northern Scandinavia  as an insect repellent against mosquitos and gnats. Beck Olja is derived from traditional pine tar  and made by Wilmas, the same company who make the ever popular Nordic Summer insect repellent.
With a delicious strong pine tar smell this product gives a real feeling of a northern Scandinavian forest. The 25ml bottles last for a long time as only a small amount is needed, and they can be diluted with a base oil or mixed with other essential oils.
