Tried and tested by generations of indigenous Australians, smouldering sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) has repelled mosquitoes for millennia.

This portable diffuser keeps the sticks away from curious small children. Best of all, no trees are felled to make the sticks, as manufacturer New Mountain says it uses only fallen sandalwood sourced from the desert floors of Australia.
