    Default Insect Repellent Sachet

    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.

    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.
