Recipe: Natural Insect Repellant

8 ounces of almond or sunflower seed oil
1/4 teaspoon of lemon eucalyptus
1/8 teaspoon of geranium essential oil
1/8 teaspoon of lavender essential oil

Put the almond oil in a bottle, add the essential oils, and shake well.

How to Use: Apply a small amount of the oil on your arm and leave for 30 minutes to make sure you are not sensitive to any of the ingredients. If no reaction occurs, then apply to exposed skin every 3 to 4 hours when you’re outdoors. Avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, and nose, and do not use on children under the age of three.
