 midge repellents, stick and roll-on
We used to make our own traditional Scottish midge repellent from bog myrtle but the EU put a stop to that, wanting 300,000 euros to register it. We found lemon eucalyptus makes a very effective natural repellent, and it works better than our own did, even in the thickest clouds of midgies. This comes in a handy pocket sized 60 ml pump spray bottle, and a roll-on, stick and minispray. To complete the range we have a deet spray, still popular with people fishing or working outdoors, and another with saltidin, a chemical developed in Germany used in popular sprays in Scotland.

 Midge candles made with citronella,
 lavender or bog myrtle essential oils
On the right, Citronella, lavender and bog myrtle Outdoor candles. These 3 inch pillar candles are solid and chunky, they weigh about 340 grams, and should burn for up to 40 hours. They are handmade by us in Scotland to our own "recipe" and use high quality oils, wax, wicks and colours. The Bog Myrtle candle is glowing green, the citronella candle in a vibrant yellow, and the lavender candle in a purple lilac colour. As well as being attractive, they smell lovely! We used to call these anti-midge candles, but the EU doesn't allow us to do that any more. The labels now just describe them as "citronella candle" etc., and they are shrink-wrapped. New photo needed!

 Midge candles made with citronella,
 lavender or bog myrtle essential oils You can also get our outdoor candles with these fragrances in a compact size in a tin, with a burning time of up to 12 hours and a total weight of 75 grams. The lightweight tin, made specially for us, is about 65 mm diameter by 25 mm deep, and very convenient for storing in a backpack for campers or walkers.

"The Stopper" Midge Head Net for midge eXtreme is designed by us, and made exclusively for us in Scotland. It has a showerproof breathable microfibre top, and very fine soft mesh material for excellent visibility and comfort, shaped loosely at the neck with elastic, with our innovative snug-fit collarette. It is available in black, white, green, pink, blue and stone. The most popular colour is black, followed by green and then stone, though all colours sell well including pink.

 natural midge repellent spray.
Stop Bite used to be our traditional Scottish midgie repellent, with Lavandin, Bog Myrtle, rosemary and lavender. It also works with mosquitoes and other insects. But the EU would have required 300,000 euros to register each active ingredient so we withdrew it from sale. We let CarePlus of Holland spend the money instead and now sell their products!

UK Herb Growers: we may be interested in buying your fresh herbs. Please contact us with some details, using the supplier tab at the top of the page. We may also be able to help you sell your herbs, if we do help you at all, please let us know afterwards about your success as our reward for our help! We want to provide an online directory of herb nurseries, markets, growers, wholesalers and distributors, not just in Scotland but UK-wide (and even not in the UK). We've started the directory of Herb Growers and sellers, please visit and register your herb business for free. It must be directly relevant to fresh herbs and possibly dried herbs, not herbal products. This helps promote the use of natural herbs and is a useful resource for us, and unfortunately our competitors! But we can live with that.


A little about midges: There are many species of midge, not all of them biting. The worst of these is supposed to be the Highland Midge. And apparently it's only the female midgie that bites. It doesn't feel that way when surrounded by a cloud of midges - all of them seem to be biting! Supposedly the female needs blood to lay loads of larvae to make baby midgies. It makes you wonder how midges manage to breed if there's no humans or animals around to bite. Also according to urban legend, cold hard winters kill off the midge population. Midges lay their larvae a good few inches into the ground - usually wet, peaty or muddy. Perhaps a hard frost and a freeze can kill them off. I doubt it personally, there always seem to be loads of midges, any year. And not just in Scotland!

 bog myrtle When we started this website it was going to be all about herbs. But after being tormented by midges while digging up our herb garden, we came up with Itch Ease for midge bites - and were persuaded to start selling it. People in the Highlands of Scotland don't believe we have midges in Largs - we have enough! After being told of the magical natural repellent properties of bog myrtle, where shepherds and others used to put a sprig behind the ear to keep away midges, we developed our midge repellent. So many midge head nets were really just mosquito nets with big holes, or uncomfortable to wear, we went on to design our own better midge head net and were then persuaded to develop midge candles. We'll keep going with insect repellents and other anti-midge products, but one of these days we'll also get back to our overgown herb garden ...

I pick a rose

I pick a herb
and think of stew!

By Totally Herby we mean just exactly that - we will introduce more and more products that have everything to do with herbs. This website is low priority as we do our real business "out there", with our present and future ranges of herb products, especially the anti-midge and other insect repellent and insect netting. Later on we hope to bring you information and properties of the most common kitchen herbs: parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, along with basil, bay, garlic and chives. Onions and shallots can also be called herbs, and some chefs use welsh onions for their flavour. Dill and garden mint or spearmint are often used to help digestion, and as well as being used for curry, cumin and coriander and even caraway are still popular herbs in their own right. Salads can be garnished with dandelions, marigolds and nasturtium leaves, and savoury savory;

Mediterranean cuisine abounds with the use of marjoram, oregano and tarragon. Lemon balm and applemint add delicious flavour to drinks, even Coca Cola!

Herbs from our gardens and the wild.

Herbalists will use herbs such as rue, cleavers (sticky willie) and yarrow for homeopathic medicines, cosmetic uses include borage, lovage, lavender, marigold (scars) the well known chamomile and hyssop. Dock leaves are crushed to provide instant relief for nettle stings (which our Itch Ease is also good for), but lesser known herbs include comfrey, plantain, savory, the male fern, fennel, elderflower, the beautiful feverfew, and hawthorn to draw out splinters and thorns, bog myrtle is used in insect repellents, good for healing wounds and apparently has anti-wrinkle properties.

These herbs are all growing in Scotland, cultivated or wild amongst the heather and the bracken.

Planned: pictures, how to grow the plants and uses as herbal remedies.

Please note much of this site is permanently unfinished.
