Home-made Bug Repellent

I have been way too busy to bake anything new and get a post up, so I thought I would post this recipe for the bug repellent we use.

In 1 1/2 oz of your favorite unscented lotion, mix 10 drops citronella essential oil, 5 drops lemongrass oil, and 5 drops rosemary oil.

The lemongrass and rosemary can be adjusted to your preference, but this mixture works fantastically well (and is allergy safe for us!)

Does it also work against ticks? At the very least it must smell much better than DEET.
