Don’t start the season without it!

Activated carbon: Used to relieve digestive problems such as bloating, gas, indigestion, diarrhea, and bad breath. Also reduces intestinal discomfort caused by eating different foods than normal or foods of questionable bacteriological quality. Do not use if you take chemical medication.

Citronella-based insect repellent: Although DEET-based products offer excellent protection, DEET remains controversial due to its potential effects—skin eruptions, headache, dizziness, etc. It should be used with caution on children and irritated or injured skin. Opt instead for citronella-based products, which are just as effective. Simply apply them more often.
