Remember, what we put on our skin ends up INSIDE our body! Our skin is the largest organ we are walking around with – let’s feed it quality substances. When it comes to living a healthy and organic lifestyle, what we lather on our bod is just as significant as what we put in our mouths. Here is a wonderful DIY essential oil blend that will work like a charm to keep those ticks off of you, your family and your pets!
1 cup distilled water
2 drops geranium essential oil
2 drops palo santo essential oil
1 drop myrrh essential oil
4 drops grapefruit essential oil
1 drop peppermint essential oil
1 drop thieves hand soap or castile soap.
Place all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake. Spritz on socks, sneakers, boots, ankles and legs as well as any exposed skin. Have fun on the trails!
