      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

      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.
