I took my knowledge of essential oils and developed this recipe specifically for my own child. My son is allergic to insect bites, especially mosquitoes. Living in the woods here in northeast TX, we have mosquitoes by the billions, plus chiggers, biting flies, and ticks. I'm not comfortable using commercial repellant on my littles, but we use Stop Buggin' Me Spray daily for outside time.
In my little corner of the woods, it works to prevent tick bites, mosquito bites, chigger bites, and wards off flies. However, this has not been lab proven and I can make no legal guarantee that it will work for you. (That's my obligatory statement to keep me out of trouble with the FDA).
Ingredients: distilled water, witch hazel, denatured alcohol, pure vanilla, glycerin, lavender essential oil, rosemary essential oil, peppermint essential oil, lemongrass essential, eucalyptus essential oil, citronella essential oil, preservative
