Essential Oil Insect Repellent Recipe
15 Aug 2012
You don’t need to douse yourself in toxic chemicals in order to keep the mosquitoes away. Try this great-smelling alternative made with a mix of essential oils
Fill a small bottle/spray bottle (50-100ml) with a skin-friendly carrier oil such as olive, almond, jojoba or coconut. Never put essential oils directly on your skin.
Add a few drops of citronella, eucalyptus, rosemary and lavender essential oils. Shake. Apply lightly directly onto your skin/clothes and get back to enjoying your barbeque, camping, or evening stroll!
