Where to buy

  • Ingredients

    Melaleuca Oil, one of the purest forms of tea tree oil, has been used for thousands of years to support the healing of skin irritations, minor wounds, abrasions and insect bites and stings due to its antimicrobial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.

     

    All of the melaleuca oil used in mundicare® products is lovingly harvested, refined and purified at a single origin in Byron Bay. Our farmers have delicately perfected their distillation process over the years to extract the finest quality of oil from their melaleuca plants. They are only harvested once a year, and the leaves are carefully selected before being distilled in line with very strict regulations. As a result, the oil we collect contains approximately 17% more antimicrobial agent than what is required in the Australian and International standards.

  • Treatment Advice

    Mosquito Bites

    Female mosquitos suck the blood of mammals to supply their eggs with protein. Australia has over 300 species of mosquitos, and these annoying, vampire-like insects are the cause of frustration to adults and children alike. The symptoms associated with mosquito bites are caused by the insect’s saliva.

     

    Signs and Symptoms

    • Swelling
    • Redness
    • Itching

    Occasionally, mosquito bites become infected due to our own scratching and itching. Our fingernails are full of bacteria and can cause infection should you break your skin while scratching.

     

    How to Avoid Mosquito Bites

    • Get rid of standing water. Mosquitos breed in pools of water that lack movement. If you’ve got standing water in your yard, find a way to fill it in.
    • Wear long sleeves and avoid bright colours.
    • Use screens on all windows so that mosquitos are unable to enter.
    • Employ the use of mosquito repellent.
