Repel Insects with Smart Scents

The days are getting longer, the weather warmer,
the whole world seems so alive- and you're itching
to spend more time outdoors. Therein lies the rub:
Dive bombing mosquitoes can mess with the most
heavenly evening.
Buzz-Off Oil
8 oz almond oil
1/4 tsp lemon eucalyptus essential oil
1/8 tsp geranium essential oil
1/8 tsp lavender essential oil
Put almond oil in a bottle, add essential oils, and
shake well. Apply a small amount to your arm and
leave on for 30 minutes to make sure you're not
sensitive to any of the ingredients. If you have no
reaction, then apply to exposed skin every 3 to 4 hours
when outdoors. Avoid contact with the eyes, mouth,
and nose.
