Insect Repellants

insect repellantsHere are two very different recipes to achieve the same end result. I’m not saying they are as strong as DEET mosquito repellants. I am saying that with frequent application (every 20 – 30 minutes) they work quite well.. Please note that neither is sweat-proof nor water-proof.

Recipe #1

2 oz water
1 Tbsp Nature’s Sunshine Concentrate

Combine in a spritz bottle. Spray on exposed skin and clothing frequently.

Recipe #2

1 tsp witch hazel (from drug store)
2 drops Nature’s Sunshine Wild Thyme Essential Oil
2 drops Nature’s Sunshine Organic Geranium Essential Oil
2 drops Nature’s Sunshine Organic Lavender Essential Oil
2 drops Nature’s Sunshine Peppermint Essential Oil

Combine in a spritz bottle. Spray on exposed skin and clothing frequently.
