Here are some quick and easy ALL natural bug repellents to make. Chemical free!

Label your jars:  “black fly”  or “tick” etc. for quick identification.

These recipes have a shelf life of about 5 to 6 months. Store in a cool, dark place. Tinted bottles keep the integrity of the essential oils longer. (blue or brown bottles)

The Basic Recipe
20 to 25 drops essential oil
2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon aloe vera gel

Combine the ingredients in your container. Shake to blend. Dab a few drops onto your skin, hair or clothing.

Here are some suggestions on the essential oils that the pesky, little buggers do not like.

Ticks: I would always use this one first (they HATE this one): Rose Geranium
Other Tick Oils: Palmerosa, bay, eucalyptus, European pennyroyal, lavender, tickweed (American pennyroyal)

Mosquitoes: Pennyroyal, lemon balm (citronella), thyme, lavender

Blackflies: Sassafras, lavender, eucalyptus, pennyroyal, cedar, lemon balm (citronella), peppermint

Head Lice: Tea tree, rosemary, lavender, eucalyptus, rose geranium

Fleas: Orange oil

Side note on wasps and yellow jackets: Avoid wearing perfume, hair spray, or scented
deodorant if you know you are going to be outdoors. Avoid wearing brightly colored clothing.

Caution: Pregnant & nursing women should consult with their doctors before using.
