I have a 7 gallon stainless distiller...I distilled Lemon balm for the floral water and left the essential oil in it...To 1 quart i added 60 drops Lemongrass eo and 40 drops Lemon Eucalyptus eo...Also added 1/2 tsp. carrier oil (olive in this case)(seems to make it last longer when sprayed...do not know why)...I let this sit a day or so so they can marry...i keep this in the Frig.
I then poured some into a spritzer bottle (which i have not refrigerated with no problems) and have been using all summer as a bug reppellant...works great for everything except flies and nats...You must shake everytime you use...but this is 10 times stronger than deet and with no side effects...I mist on my golden retriever once a week and good results their as well...Don't you just love these natures gems...Have also used this as room freshner and works great for cat odors on the patio...A little goes a long way...
