Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


This summer my 13year old grandson asked me what he could use against mosquitoes and ticks while away at scout camp in North Carolina.

Into a 16 oz bottle of V-6 that was half full we put about 20 drops each of Eucalyptus Globulus, Peppermint and Lemon Oil. We mixed it pretty strong because I was sure he would be sweating some of it off.

Not only did he not have any mosquitoes or ticks, he came home happy and energetic because his pollen, leaf mold and assorted other allergies did not bother him at all.

Plus he said his fellow Scouts wanted to use his oil because his mix smelled better and worked better than the commercial repellents they had brought along. Gram is very grateful that Young Living Essential Oils protected him so well and he was not exposed to chemicals or over-the-counter antihistamines!
