    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    I got this off of and adjusted it for our needs. I originally mixed it up for the dog, but it would work fine on humans too. The geranium oil makes it smell really good too. You could add a bit of oil too, if you like. Some people do that to help it mix better. Just shake it before use. Geranium is the best oil for repelling ticks and the other ones repel mosquitoes.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 20 drops geranium essential oils (or it may be called Rose Geranium oil)
    • 10 drops cedarwood essential oils
    • 10 drops lavender oil
    • 10 drops citronella essential oils
    • 4 ounces witch hazel


    1. 1
      Mix all and put in a spray bottle (glass is best, but sometimes that's hard to find). Shake before using and, if using on dog, spray fur and rough the fur up to get it in well.

      Great stuff! I live in MN and we are just starting our tick and mosquito season. This stuff works quite well and smells better than most homemade formulas I've tried. Since it doesn't contain any Deet I feel good using on my kids, who are outside all the time. You can even put it on your scalp. If you're outside late you could even go to bed with it on if you had too. Since I have oily skin I appreciate this formula having a witch hazel base! I seem to only get bit on areas I don't apply it to work on my application.
