Fuss-free repellent for a bite-free summer

Fuss-free repellent for a bite-free summer

People do the strangest things in the hope of avoidingmosquito bites. They burn cow dung, coconut shells or coffee. They drink ginand tonic. They eat bananas. They spray themselves with mouthwash or slatherthemselves in clove/alcohol solution. And they rub themselves with Bounce! Youknow, those heavily perfumed sheets that you put in your tumble dryer!!! None of these techniques have been tested tosee if they actually do keep mosquitoes away, but that doesn't stop people fromtrying them apparently!

Most people, however, opt for an insect repellent and wethink we have one of the best in Peaceful Sleep. Manufactured in South Africa,this is the number one choice for safari rangers who spend all day, every dayin an environment that is rife with bugs of every kind.

Peaceful Sleep contains DEET, which has been shown to beboth safe and effective. DEET isshorthand for the chemical N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, the active ingredient inmany insect repellents. A 2015 article in the Journal of Insect Scienceexamined the effectiveness of various commercial insect sprays, and productscontaining DEET proved the most effective and long lasting. Although there wassome early concern about its safety, tests, observational studies andintervention trials have found no evidence of adverse side effects associatedwith recommended DEET use.

Peaceful Sleep, as well as being highly effective atpreventing insect bites, is also reasonably pleasant to use. The clean, clear spray is light andnon-greasy on the skin, which makes it great for people with sensitive skin,and it deters bites from mosquitoes, flies, midges, ticks and fleas for 8+hours. It’s available in an easy-to-apply spray or a stick to target morespecific areas such as the ears, face and neck.
