Herbal Insect Repellant

  • 2 ½ teaspoons of your choice of the following essential oils : basil, cedar, citronella, juniper, lemon, myrrh, palmarosa, pine, rose geranium, rosemary
  • A few drops peppermint essential oil (optional, for fragrance)
  • 1 cup grain alcohol (e.g. vodka)

Mix ingredients in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. I like to use a spray bottle for easy application. Keep away from clothing.

Play around with an essential oil combination to suit your preference and body chemistry.
