Mosquito Repellent 
• 4 oz GLASS Spray Bottle
• 2 oz Boiled Water
• 1 oz Witch Hazel
• .5 oz Jojoba Oil - Optional, but will add a nice moisturizing feel!
• Your choice of these mosquito repelling essential oils (Try to pick 3 or more) -- Lavender, Clove, Peppermint, Citronella, Eucalyptus, Basil, Lemon, Geranium, Lemon-Eucalyptus, Thyme, Lemongrass.  --- We recommend therapeutic grade!
    Fill your Spray Bottle with the boiled water. Add witch hazel and the optional jojoba oil. Drop 50 drops of essential oils. NOT 50 of each oil, but 50 TOTAL. You can choose the amount of each oil as long as it adds up to no more than 50 drops total, or no more than 15% of the total substance. Be conscious of the amount you are putting into the spray bottle, as you will need ample space at the top of the bottle to be able to shake the repellent. Before each spray, make sure you are shaking the bottle, as the essential oil may begin to separate!

    • 1/4 cup carrier oil - (choose a natural oil such as jojoba oil, coconut oil, or olive oil)

    • 5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

    Heat your carrier oil and beeswax on a double boiler until just melted. Remove from heat. Add vitamin E and essential oils. Put into bowl. Add zinc oxide and set aside. In a small pan  - heat water and aloe vera until just warm. Add water and aloe vera mixture to your first mixture - slowly and whisking vigorously.

    REMEMBER: DO NOT. DO NOT. USE CITRUS ESSENTIAL OILS IN THE SUN! This will cause harmful skin reactions. 
    Wrinkle Cream: 

    • tablespoon grated beeswax
    • ¼ cup jojoba oil
    • ¼ cup avocado oil 
    • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
    • 5 drops Rosemary essential oil 
    • 4 drops Fennel essential oil 
    • 3 drops Carrot seed essential oil 
    • 1 tablespoon rosewater 
    Also:
    • 2 glass jugs (you can use your liquid glass measuring cups)
    • Frying pan 
     • Whisk
     • Glass jars to hold the finished product!

    Fill a frying pan with about 2 inches of water - allow water to simmer on a low heat.
    Add the beeswax, jojoba and avocado oils to a glass jug and carefully sit the first jug in the simmering water. Add the rosewater to a 2nd jug and sit this in the frying pan of simmering water also. Once your first jug of beeswax, jojoba and avacado oils have melted and blended well together - and your rosewater is warm - add Vitaman E oil to the first jug with beeswax. Gradually add the now warm rosewater to the wax and oils one drop at a time. After you have added about 1 tablespoon of the rosewater into the wax and oil mixture, remove from the heat. Continue to add the rosewater slowly, mixing continuously with a small whisk. Once the mixture starts to thicken add the Carrot, Fennel and Rosemary essential oils and mix in with the whisk. Divide the moisturizer into sterilized glass jars. Cover tightly

      DISCLAIMER
      • Do your RESEARCH prior to the use of essential oils - especially on children. Though natural, they are complex and require education for using.
      • Be careful when handling essential oils. These concentrated formulas can cause rashes on the skin and are harmful to the eyes.
      • Always dilute 100% pure essential oils prior to using them on the skin.
      • DO NOT use citrus essential oils in the sun.
      • Keep essential oils away from children, pets and open flames. Some essential oils may be deemed harmful for pregnant women.
      • Please speak to a licensed medical provider before using essential oils on small children, those with medical conditions, and those who are nursing or pregnant.
      • Remember: we are NOT medical professionals and cannot speak on the safety of essential oils. The above recipes are meant to be used only after you have spoken to a licensed aromatherapist and medical professional about the use of essential oils.
