I don't like to use the store bought insect repellents because of all the chemicals, and the nasty smell. So I make my own we have been using this for a couple years and it seems to work real well plus it doesn't smell as bad as store bought.
It is real easy to make you just need a couple empty spray bottles,witch hazel,citronella E.O.,Lemongrass E.O., Lavender E.O.,and Peppermint E.O.
Pour 1/2 a cup or with hazel in a small container, I just mix mine in the measuring cup.
Add 8 Drops of citronella E.O.
5 Drops of Lemongrass E.O.
6 drops of Lavender E.O.
3 drops of Peppermint E.O.
I use a dropper to measure out mine this way I accurate drops.
Pour in to your bottles
Shake before using.
This sure beats using the horrible store bought that is so bad for you.
