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.
This is a wonderful alternative to commercial insect repellents
which contain deet. deet can cause skin rashes, lethargy, muscle
spasms, nausea and irritability.
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:

Add 16 ounces of jojoba or almond oil to the base oil mixture and
Insect Repellent Spray
Add 16 ounces of vodka to the base oil mixture, pour into a spray
bottle, and shake before using.
