It’s the age-old question. If you’re like me, you approach those late afternoon outdoor gatherings with trepidation! After all, if there are mozzies around, it will be you they head for above others. It will be you that’s slapping your legs to get them before they bite or itching the bites like mad while others continue their festivities completely uninterrupted!
There are many theories surrounding this frustrating (for some!) reality. Here are a few you may have heard and other more obscure ones you haven’t! People who get eaten alive have more potassium in their blood from overconsuming bananas or people with an O positive/O negative blood type or people have sweeter blood than others or people who drink beer! The truth is there isn’t a scientifically proven reason, however, after decades of research, scientists are close to working out why mosquitoes bite some people, and not others. It comes down to a complex trifecta of carbon dioxide, body temperature and body odour that makes people more inviting to mozzies than others. It’s hard to change many of those factors, but the best way to ensure you’re protected is with a good quality and natural insect repellent. CinnaBalm has got you covered! You can still eat bananas and have a cold beer on a summers day and still be protected from our insect friends! Be sure to stock up for this Spring/Summer!
