Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

And you thought it was just a song.... but my kids won't go camping without it.

The kids were going camping over the Fourth of July weekend with family and friends. Bib, my youngest, wanted something to make her sleeping bag user friendly all weekend.

So I blended witch hazel with whatever leftover dabs I had in my essential oil bottles of Parsley, Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme. Then I poured this mixture to several small spray bottles. Each child got a bottle to apply to their shorts, shirts, sleeping bags, towels, and the interior of their tent.

The result was a very hot but fun holiday with no chiggers, no spiders in the tents, and fewer mosquitoes over all. The sleeping bags even smelled better upon return than when they left.

Bib plans to use the spray in her gym locker upon returning to school. The simplest things appear to work best.

Happy trails to the rest of you oilers.
