Sandalwood has been used by Aboriginal people for many generations as an effective mosquito repellent. In traditional times, Aboriginal people burned the bark, wood and the leaves. Sandalwood is also used or medicinal, spiritual and emotional purposes.
One predicament people face is having to choose between using potentially harsh chemicals on our skin, against the possibility of acquiring a mosquito borne disease. Here in Australia these include Ross River Virus, Dengue Fever, Australian Encephalitis and on very rare occasions, Malaria. The problem is particularly vexed when it comes to parents using chemical repellents on their children’s skin.
We can all take sensible precautions. New Mountain’s Sandalwood Mosquito Sticks allow everyone to continue to enjoy Australia’s great outdoors.
How to use
You will require one stick to cover 3m2.
Light the end of the Sandalwood Mosquito Stick, ensuring the entire tip is alight and flamed. Let the tip flame for at least 30 seconds so that the whole tip is burning.
Gently blow out the flame so that the tip of the mosquito stick is smouldering and there is a steady stream of sandalwood coming out.
Place the mosquito stick in the outdoor area at ground level. The sandalwood will smoulder and will disperse, minimising exposure to mosquitoes!
Once you are ready to come inside, extinguish the Sandalwood Mosquito Stick and relight for next time.
