More info

Many plant essential oils repel insects naturally. Plants don’t like insects any more than we do! Our Napiers essential oil blend has been used in Scotland for thirty years. Here we have the renowned Scottish midge, as well as more exotic mosquitoes and gnats! We also find that plant oils are disliked by non-biting but annoying insects such as bluebottles, flies and wasps, helping to keep them away.   

 As summer skins are often sunburned too, our Bugbuster Outdoor Cream also contains soothing Chickweed oil and cooling Aloe Vera. An added bonus from our lovely, thoughtful herbalists who formulated this cream.

Bite relief

I was very sceptical when I bought this cream but I thought I would give it a go and I’m so glad I did . It’s so good to get a product that works . Within minutes this cream takes away the heat and itch from your bites . So bring it on Mosquitoes we are ready for you. My family and friends thank you too as the minute they get bitten I whip out my Napier’s bug buster cream . I will be buying again soon .
Many thanks from down south
I have used Bugbuster before

I have used Bugbuster before and as I am soon to be going to France where the mosquitos have arrived apparently and later to SA I needed to order some more fairly urgently and as usual your service was excellent, I also ordered Venatone leg cream as I was suffering from a swollen ankle so needed that soon as well, all in all a pleasure to do business with you. Many thanks.
