    I have used both of these and they work very good!



    Insect Repellent

    This is a wonderful alternative to commercial insect repellents which

    contain DEET. DEET can cause skin rashes, lethargy, muscle spasms,

    nausea and irritability.



    Base Mixture:

    1/2 ounce citronella oil

    1/4 ounce lavender oil

    1/8 ounce pennyroyal oil

    1/8 ounce eucalyptus oil

    1/8 ounce tea tree oil

    1/8 ounce jojoba oil



    Do not use this blend undiluted on your skin. Follow these

    instructions for diluting:



    Insect Repellent Oil: (for use on the body)

    Add 16 ounces of jojoba or almond oil to the base oil mixture and

    blend thoroughly.



    Insect Repellent Spray:

    Add 16 ounces of vodka to the base oil mixture, pour into a spray

    bottle, and shake before using.

    -------------------------------------------

    Insect Repellent Sachet

    4 parts tansy

    4 parts patchouli

    2 parts lavender

    1/2 of 1 part powdered orris root



    Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Fill cloth bags made from

    remnants. Tie off with a bow.

    Another similar one I use is:

    part citronella oil
    part tea tree oil
    part lavendar oil

    mix with whatever carrier oil you have - almond oil, grapeseed oil, olive oil and equal part water of Everclear (is that the same as vodka? don't really know, cuz I'm not a drinker)

    I use either a spray top or flip top bottle. Just remember to give it a little shake just before using. I can't handle the smell of vinegar, so this one works good for us.
