  • Mozzies Plus Natural Insect Repellent for People – Your Questions Answered

    by Fiona Lane January 15, 2024

    Mozzies Plus Natural Insect Repellent for People. Easy to use and chemical-free.

    Mozzies Plus is an innovative, natural insect repellent for people that repels mosquitos, midges, sandflies and ticks. Unlike most natural repellents, Mozzies Plus is taken orally, removing the need to apply topical repellents that can often have a strong smell, or be greasy or stain your clothing.

    So how exactly can an oral remedy repel insects, does it really work and how much does it cost? Read on to get answers to these questions and more!

    How can an oral remedy repel mosquitos?

    Using an oral remedy to repel mosquitos sounds strange, but this innovative natural remedy subtly changes your body odour so that biting bugs like mosquitos, midges, sandflies and even ticks no longer recognise you as their next meal.

    What does it taste like?

    Unlike topical repellents, Mozzies Plus doesn’t have a strong taste or smell. The active ingredients are suspended in one of two bases – sweet glycerine or alcohol and purified water. You can choose your preferred base as you go through checkout in our online store.

    How do I use Mozzies Plus?

    Easy. Simply take two pumps of remedy onto your tongue 15-20 minutes before heading outdoors, then repeat the dose every 1-2 hours as needed. This remedy can also be added to your water bottle to make top up dosing even easier, especially for kids! The ingredients are activated as soon as they come into contact with a mucous membrane such as the tongue, gums or lips so it doesn’t matter how much – or little – you drink. Even a small sip will deliver a top-up dose.

    Who can use Mozzies Plus?

    Anyone who gets pestered or bitten by mosquitos, midges, sandflies or ticks can use this remedy – babies, infants, children, adults of all ages and those who are pregnant or on medication.

    Is Mozzies Plus for People on its own enough to stop bites?

    You shouldn’t need to use any additional repellents over and above Mozzies Plus, however just like most repellents, we can’t guarantee complete protection. If you do get a bite or two, applying a little Mozzies Plus to the bite can help to take the itching away.

    What if I take more Mozzies Plus than the recommended dosage?

    As a homeopathic remedy, taking more Mozzies Plus than recommended won’t have any harmful side effects. However, it also won’t make the product more effective either!

    Can children use Mozzies Plus?

    Absolutely. Children aged 0-10 only need one pump of remedy per dose, while for children aged 11 upwards, a dose consists of two pumps.

    What if I’m pregnant, on medication or have food allergies?

    Good news! Mozzies Plus is gluten and dairy free, non-addictive, safe for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding and can be used alongside prescription medicines.

    Can I use Mozzies Plus on my skin?

    The ingredients in Mozzies Plus only activate when taken orally, so applying it to your skin won’t repel mosquitos, midges, sandflies or ticks. However if you do get bitten, dabbing a little bit of remedy onto the bite can help to reduce the itching.

    How long will a bottle of Mozzies Plus last?

    That depends on how often you use it and whether you are dosing adults, children, or both. Our 50ml bottle contains 130 adult doses while our 90ml bottle contains 230 adult doses. The remedy has a two-year shelf life.

    Does it work?

    We can’t guarantee complete protection, but we do have quite a few happy customers who have left reviews!

    How much does it cost?

    Prices will vary depending on the currency you use, so the best idea is to head to our website and select your preferred currency and size to get an accurate cost.
