Essential Oil Insect Repellent Recipe

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.

Apply lightly directly onto your skin/clothes and get back to enjoying your barbeque, camping, or evening stroll! *This product should not be ingested!
