    I had no idea there were only limited ingredients that were recommended! I honestly thought if chemists were selling them they must work. I’ll be looking at the ingredients from now on. Thank you.

    • Glad to hear it Andrea, that is the power of branded marketing and the homeopathic companies know it. They know if they can sell it in pharmacies they will get that automatic ‘health profession endorsement’ in the eyes of the public. Unfortunately there is a wide gap between being safe for sale and being effective for use.

    So apart from DEET are the others you mentioned completely natural then?
