PLEASE REMEMBER THIS BEFORE USING ANY ESSENTAL OILS AND DO YOUR RESEARCH !!!!!!!!
For those folks new to essential oils, it’s important to note you can use them topically on your skin (but not sensitive skin near your eyes, etc.), diffuse them with a diffuser, or create a spray by diluting the oil with water and either witch hazel toner (found in the beauty aisle) or vodka. Essential oils, while natural and plant-based, can be very potent. Please research their effectiveness and application before using any product. For example, the oils degrade the plastic over time, so if you decide to make a spray, use dark blue or amber glass bottles.
Safe for ages one and up. Repels mosquitos, ticks, flies, and other biting insects. Keep your family safe from Zika, Lyme's, West Nile, and other insect borne diseases.

Catnip oil is extracted from an aromatic herb, nepeta cataria. Catnip has a centuries-old reputation as a soothing herbal tea. The essential oil of catnip, called nepetalactone, was compared to Diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET), which is the main ingredient in many commercial insecticides, Catnip oil was more effective than DEET in repelling mosquitoes. The oil is also effective in repelling house flies and cockroaches.

Citronella is a well-known mosquito repellent. In a dose by dose comparison, citronella is initially as effective as DEET. However, citronella oil evaporates quickly, meaning that it is only effective for a short time. Also, high concentrations of citronella can cause skin irritation.
Neem oil acts as a great indoor mosquito-repellent owing to its smell that wards off mosquitoes. One can make an effective insecticide by mixing neem oil and coconut oil in equal proportion and rub it on the exposed parts of a body.
