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.

I recently made my own insect repellent cause we went camping a number of times this summer. I wanted to try something more natural, none of those toxic chemical Off Spray that we usually spray on in the summer to chase away insects or mosquito, so I decided to make my own insect repellent, the oils did indeed work, plus it lasted for several hours without applying to it, here is my recipe as follow:

* In a small travel size bottle, I used:

- 10 drops Peppermint oil
- 10 drops Purification oil (has Citronella)
- 10 drops Lemon oil
- 10 drops Thieves oil (has Lemon, Rosemary, Clove, Cinnamon & Eucalyptus)
- Almond oil as the base oil (Rich source of Vitamin E)
