Wilmas Nordic Summer

Since the middle of the last century, “Beckolja” (i.e. tar oil) has been used by the inhabitants of Northern Scandinavia; partly as a remedy, partly as a protection against Mosquitoes and Gnats. For the peasants and country people in this part of the world, “Beckolja” has been – and will always be – a permanent companion and friend, wherever they go. When peat-harvesting, people brought it along together with their food packet and coffee pot.

“Beckolja” is a genuine natural product made from boiled tar and has an aromatic flavour of forest and wildness.

Staff Review

We, just like many other outdoor instructors use this throughout the year to dissuade “the flying teeth” of midges, mosquitoes and gnats. It smells of birch wood fires and most importantly, it works. When you open the tin for the first time the smell of the tar oil will probably take your breath away (if you haven’t smelt it before that is).

To use it simply rub your fingers onto the product and then wipe/rub them onto your exposed skin, repeating as necessary. (A bit like wiping boot polish onto your skin).
