Natural Bug Repellent May 21 2015

For those who prefer to avoid chemicals, one of my clients used this recipe with great success in the middle of the woods!  The cinnamon oil must contain Eugenol and preferably be from Ceylon.

For spray:

Fill a bottle with 1/2 witch hazel and 1/2 distilled water.  Add a drop of rwo of cinnamon oil.

Oil for a diffuser:

Vegetable glycerine and a drop or two of cinnamon oil.

This is the cinnamon oil she used:  http://www.avogel.ca/en/essential-oils/cinnamon.php
