Needless to say, commercial bug repellent is laden with DEET and other nasty chemicals. This is a recipe from Andrea of Frugally Sustainable for a natural, bug repellent salve. It’s a mixture of a carrier oil, beeswax and four essential oils.
Andrea clearly covers each step in making the salve and includes some helpful hints. This is a salve that can be rolled or spread on your skin. It’s convenient for protecting your face, neck and hard-to-reach spots.
