It’s summer concert season!
J and I went to Dave Matthews last weekend. It’s always such a fantastic show. My only worry was the wet spring and abundance of mosquitos in an outdoor venue. I whipped up a roller bottle of natural bug repellent just before the show and it worked great.
- 2tbs witch hazel or vodka
- 10 drops YL Lemongrass essential oil
- 5 drops YL Peppermint essential oil
- 5 drops YL Purification essential oil
- Fractionated coconut oil
I used a 10 mL roller bottle–because that is what I had on hand. Once I added the primary ingredients, I used fractionated coconut oil to fill the bottle and provide a little staying power for the oils.
Everyone that we went to the show with wore the oils. Six adults, ZERO bug bites. Yes!
Great news! I also found out today that YL is launching several great new products, including their own natural insect repellent! I admit, the product is pricey, but it is 99% essential oils with 1% vitamin E. No harmful chemicals–just mother nature’s own natural insect repelling oils.
Personally, I love having my YL Starter Kit. Becoming a member allows me wholesale price on any products. The starter kits provide several options to enjoy a dozen or more essential oils, diffusers, as well as samples of popular products.

It gives me control over ingredients and so far it costs less to make what I like.
