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.
