Warm weather and springtime bring an array of fun outdoor activities for most of us. Whether you like to hike, go bicycling, play sports, sail or surf or just lay on the beach or by the pool, most of us find SOME time to get away for the work doldrums, maybe even shut off social media and get out in the fresh air.

But along with having fun come the adverse consequences: sore muscles, mosquito & bug bite, sunburns, scrapes and potentially even tick bites that can lead to more serious problems.

Today we’ll address the bug issues using Ameo Essential Oils:

Bug Repellents:

Commercial bug repellents are loaded with chemicals like DEET that can cause rashes and even neurological symptoms. Many are known to cause cancer and disrupt hormones as well.

  • Bug Repellent Spray:

Choose from: Citronella, Clove, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Cajeput, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Cinnamon and Cedar.                                    Fill an 8oz. spray bottle 1/2 full with distilled water. Add witch hazel til almost full. Add 30-50 drops of essential oils. Shake well before applying.

  • Tick Repellent:

10 drops Lavender, 10 drops Lemongrass, 10 drops Eucalyptus.     Add oils to a 4 oz spray bottle filled with 1/2 distilled water & 1/2 witch hazel. Spray on shoes, sock pant legs & skin.

  • Tick Repellent Part 2

Carry a lint roller that has been sprayed with the above solution.  Roll it over your pant legs & socks periodically. You may be shocked what you pick up!

  • Bug Bite Itch Relief 

25% Tea Tree oil, 25% Lavender oil, 50% carrier oil (sweet almond, fractionated coconut or avocado oil are all good choices) Mix this in a 10ml roller bottle. Apply just a dab to bug bites.
