Didnae know that! What's the problem wi citronella?

I'm usually okay wi midgies, I don't seem to get overly bothered with them if the boyf's about - they all attack him. They hover about me but I don't get driven mad wi bites. It's still an unpleasant experience to find yourself surrounded by clouds of 'em though, damn near thick as air.

Everybody here swears by an Avon product, 'Skin So Soft'. < ahem >. It wasn't invented as a midgie repellent, but apparently does the job. Has anyone tried it?

Wikipedia wrote:
Citronella may irritate skin and cause dermatitis in certain individuals. It should not be used on the skin of young children (under 3 years old).

Wikipedia wrote:
In Europe, Ceylon type citronella oil is placed on the category 3 list, with some safety concern regarding methyl eugenol

Mebbe wanny these is why.
