Preparing for a Bug Free Spring with Essential Oils March 4, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — indigoseed @ 3:12 pm

Before a trip to Senegal West Africa 2 years ago, I started to craft a bug spray that acted as an excellent repellent for mosquitoes, ticks, fleas an all types of critters.  It worked so well while I was in Africa that I decided to keep making it and eventually began selling it.  It’s amazing how useful essential oils can be.  They work on the physical and more subtle levels to create a variety of changes in the chemistry of the body and the environment.  I use essential oils for all types of things.  Lemon and Lavender among other citrus oils are great for cleaning.  And for repelling bugs a combination of  any of the following can assist in keeping you bite and bother free.

  • Citronella Oil
  • Lemon Eucalyptus Oil
  • Cinnamon Oil
  • Castor Oil
  • Rosemary Oil
  • Lemongrass Oil
  • Cedar Oil
  • Peppermint Oil
  • Clove Oil
  • Geranium Oil
  • Possibly Oils from Verbena, Pennyroyal, Lavender, Pine, Cajeput, Basil, Thyme, Allspice, Soybean, and Garlic

I use a sprayable fractionated oil as my base oil so that the scent can be sprayed and rubbed on and will be longer lasting.
