Tis the season to be bitten. Fa la la la la, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch!!!

If you’re a firm favourite with the mozzies and midges and you’re keen to keep them at bay this summer, then I would recommend investing in some good quality Lemongrass, Citronella and Eucalyptus.  You can either add to a diffuser or make a spritz and spray your room and clothes.
