Miracle Essential Oils Single Oils
Did you know that you can use essential oils to keep insects and mosquitos at bay without the toxic chemicals found in most bug sprays? Just apply geranium, eucalyptus and citronella essential oils topically or combine a few drops each (to your desired scent) in a spray bottle filled with a carrier oil (such as almond oil) for a safe and effective DIY insect repellant. Miracle Essential Oils has a great line of high-quality single essential oils and blends.
