NETTEX summer Freedom is an advanced salve which helps repel and protect against insects and biting flies. This unique formulation also contains margosa (neem) and eucalyptus and has wonderfully soothing and disinfecting properties. Here are some top tips to get the most out of this Summer season:

  • Preventative strategies are the key to itch control.
  • Start early! Use Summer Freedom as the weather warms with a once weekly application.
  • Soothe, sanitise and disinfect minor sores with Summer Freedom and help break the itch, scratch cycle.
  • Summer Freedom repels against new bites and supports hair regrowth.
  • Weather resistant, simple to apply and will not matt the horse’s hair.
  • We do not recommend you apply under fly masks as may cause irritation.
  • If using product for the first time we always recommend a patch test first.
  • Ideal to apply around sarcoids to help prevent irritation from flies.
  • We also recommend bathing where or when necessary to remove build-up of grime and dirt with everyday conditioning shampoo. This is kind to skin and does not strip coat of natural oils.
  • 600ml tub can last 6-8 weeks

Made in UK.


Key ingredients: NN- Diethyl-M-Tolumide 2.45%, Margosa extract 2.0%, Eucalyptus citriodora, hydrated, cyclized 0.64%


Apply directly to any area that has been affected or prone to attack using a clean sponge, ensuring sensitive areas are not missed e.g. around eyes, nose, muzzle and dock avoiding mucous membranes.

In most cases one application a week is sufficient. In severe cases if the itch, rub, scratch cycle has started it may need to be applied more regularly.

For best results prewash with NETTEX Everyday Shampoo before applying to remove any grease, dirt or debris and sanitise the skin.

Repeat application after heavy rainfall, bathing or heavy sweating. Do not use under saddlery areas or fly rugs as may cause irritation from sweating.

For maximum results apply as early as February to prevent midge attacks taking hold. The mane, tail and rump areas are most prone to attack.


  • For best results, prewash with NETTEX Everyday Shampoo to thoroughly cleanse the area before application then every 10 -14 days to remove build-up of dirt and debris.
  • NETTEX Itch Stop Salve Summer Freedom is the ideal addition to your midge avoidance strategy. Not only does it have soothing and repellent properties it also acts as a barrier that midges aren’t able to bite through.
  • Preventative strategies are the key to itch control. For best results start your itch control strategy as early as February to prevent midge attacks taking hold.

Mare with Sweat itch


Can this product be used on skin that is already broken from scratching ?

  • VioVet Staff


Thank you for your question.

Yes - this soothes, sanitises and disinfects existing sores, helping to break the itch, scratch and rub cycle.

Hope that helps,

Can this be used on the sheath area?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi there,

Thank you for your query.

This product is very safe and may be applied to the sensitive sheath and groin areas on your horse, but just ensure you give the site a good clean before application as this will help the product to sink into the skin and really break the itch cycle ready for this upcoming midge season.

I hope this helps.
