Natural insect repellent

Make sure you use real essential oils not fragrance oils.

20 drops Eucalyptus oil
20 drops Cedarwood oil
10 drops Tea Tree oil
10 drops Geranium oil
2 oz. carrier oil ( such as Jojoba )

Mix together in a 4 oz. container. Apply to skin as needed avoiding the eye area. Keep out of reach of children. Test on a small area of skin for sensitivities . Experiment with different percentages of essential oil. This works well in a small spray bottle.

I have also been told that marigolds are insect repellents so you may want to try planting some throughout the garden. They also help ward off bunnies & deer.
