Natural Insect Repellent


Since I’m not interested in using damaging chemicals on my skin, I always turn to nature and the plant kingdom to give me the protection and relief I deserve. Because of their outstanding antiseptic and oil-soluble properties, essential oils are ideal for trating most kinds of insect bites.  Yes, I am talking about Young Living Essential Oils and their healing properties. Young Living offers therapeutic grade essential oils and I have been using them since 1994.
