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 am loving Purification essential oil blend as a bug repellant. Usually I get attacked by mosquitoes that leave large, itchy bumps. With Purification on, they don't touch me!

Other essential oils that also work well are Citronella, Peppermint, and Lemongrass. Diffusing Peppermint even keeps the flies away.

Just mix a couple drops of your choice of one of the essential oils listed above with a carrier oil like V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex, almond oil, coconut oil, or olive oil. This helps to spread the essential oil. Do not worry about dilution; it will work just fine.

I also keep the Thieves essential oil blend handy for tick bites. After I have been bitten, I find Lavender and Peppermint essential oils work well at reducing the swelling and eliminating the bite mark.
