Relief from Itchy Mozzie Bites: Australian Bodycare Any Time Balm with Tea Tree Oil

Yes, yes, yes: tea tree oil = antiseptic. Well, duh. I generally am displeased by the scent, but desperate times often call for scents I desperately dislike.

I had the itchiest, worst mosquito bite, and it was driving me demented. A quick jaunt around the internet disclosed the fact that the oil of tea tree was a good way to get rid of it, and my eye fell on the little tub that had been sitting on my desk for the last while.
AUSTRALIAN BODY CARE BALM
I’ve tried a number of the Australian Bodycare products — the best so far having been an excellent full leg/bikini wax I got from Bespoke Beauty in Donnybrook. I wasn’t as mad about the shampoo/conditioner, again because: the smell. I was RW&A to give this stuff a go, though, as I usually like the texture of a balm, and its cooling quailities.

In a word: perfect.

> It absorbs quickly and lightly, it took away the itch on contact, and it really is rather pleasantly resinous. Well, I would say that now, given that it did such a great job.

> The texture is a little bit grainy, and needs a nice warm-up between the fingers to get the best out of it.

> I still needed it the next day — this was one massive mozzie — but today I only lashed some on as I’ve easily gotten into the habit.

Would I use it for anything else? I might possibly try it on my cuticles or on my heels — basically, the further away from my nose the better — but this is now and always my go-to itchbuster.

  1. I’ve tried a few Australian Bodycare products and really love them. Tea tree oil is a great all rounder for skin especially in the summer!
