Sunburns, Ticks and Mosquitos

Summer is nearly here and already people are asking me about bug spray. Ive been collecting some great bug spray recipes to share with my readers and now they are in. But first, I would like to share a sunburn solution for you to try.
Sunburn Soother
2 oz bottle
1 oz purified water
1 oz Aloe Vera Gel
8 drops Lavender AOC
8 drops Peppermint essential oil
Combine all together and apply generously to sunburned areas.

*Silver Shield Gel also works well for Sunburn!

Mosquito Repellent
2 oz spritz bottle
1 tbsp NSP concentrate
6 drops lavender AOC
6 drops peppermint essential oil
May also add drops geranium and/or 4 drops thyme linalol.
Spritz on generously before and during outdoor activities

Spider Repellent/Bug Repellent

Put about 4 drops of Tea Tree Oil in water in a spray bottle and spray the air/floor vents, around the pipes under the sinks and the door thresholds.
Grasshopper Killer
Heard a new pesticide remedy for bugs on your plants yesterday. Put a clove of garlic and jalapeno peppers in your blender then mix with a gallon of water and spray on plants.

On The Skin!
For your skin use Tei Fu Lotion. Works great. For a spray, either put Tei Fu Oil in a spray bottle of water, shaking regularly while you spray. Can also use Rue, Eucalyptus, and Citronella Oils - a little of each in a quart spray bottle of water. Shake while you use. A couple drops of Tei Fu Oils is great against those ants.

Garlic and Balanced B-Complex

Find these and many other great ingredients at I do not sell these products anymore but they are still a great product.
