Deep Woods Defense Topical Oil

Through reading and research, Alecia has devised a blend using a 60 mL treatment pump glass bottle for easy and clean dispensing. She blended a base of 50 mL fractionated coconut oil, 1 tsp. of neem seed oil, and 2 mL (approx. 60 drops) of our Deep Woods blend of bergamot, lemongrass, citronella and yarrow essential oils (available in our Botanical Apothecary).

Lucky for Alecia, her husband is the perfect candidate to try these sorts of remedies on (bugs love to bite him). Because they do a fair amount of walking and hiking in deeply-forested areas, she wanted a product that would last without a need for frequent reapplication, as is the case with many natural sprays.

This blend did wonders on their hike in the deep woods of Elk Island National Park! Not one single mosquito bite, nor did they land on these areas. The best part of all was no need for reapplication for more than three hours. Happily, they did not encounter any ticks. Both the yarrow and citronella essential oils in this blend have been used for preventing tick bites in regions where ticks have been well-established for years.
