Its summer and bugs have arrived!
There are various kinds of bug repellents out there. Most contain chemicals that may not be good for our bodies, especially when we remember our skin absorbs what is placed on it.
If you are concerned about what you put on your and your family's skin, try making your own bug repellent using Essential Oils. I recently tried and it worked (and I smelled great!).
Organic Aromas recommends the following essential oils:
. Pine, etiver, Bergamot
The article also recommends the following recipe for after insect stings and bites:
10 drops each of Tea Tree and Peppermint essential oils mixed and applied undiluted to area as often as needed.
Please remember to use good essential oils. Please check your labels to make sure then can be used on your body.
I use Young Living essential oils because of their Seed to Seal guarantee that promises that the materials used in the oils are genuine, no chemicals were used on the plants as they grew, no chemicals or fillers were added during the distilling or packaging process.

I enjoy yoga as it brings peace to my life. Teaching yoga has brought joy to my life and given me a chance to encourage others in learning yoga.
