Homemade Insect Repellent



With summer underway its time to start thinking about protecting yourself from the buzzing blood sucking pests.  Instead of spraying yourself with poisons why not try an all natural  insect repellent?  The essential ingredients in this homemade insect repellent have been shown to keep the nasty little biters far, far, ————–>far away.  However, if you are in the deep woods or in an area of a high rate of mosquito-transmitted diseases, such as West Nile, you may need a stronger protection.

This repellent is not recommended to be used on small children or infants.

15-20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil

15-20 drops lemon essential oil

15-20 drops lemongrass essential oil

15-20 drops citronella essential oil

1 ounce olive oil

In a small spray bottle, mix the essential oils with the olive oil.  Use as needed.
