Disclaimer: Patchouli ages well with time. The longer you have it, the stronger the scent and potency. If you’ve had Patchouli in your possession for a year or more, you might need to decrease the amount you use in the following recipes.
To deter insects, spray the mist on the exposed areas of the body before going outdoors. Rub F.C.O. oil into the skin before essential oil application. Spray a minimal amount of formula onto skin. Avoid misting on the face. Instead, apply the following formula to the face.
Dissolve all oils into Epsom salts and add to a warm/hot bath. Soak for at least 20 minutes for maximum benefit.
Add formula to a 4-ounce fine-mist spray bottle. Shake well before every use. Liberally spritz before going to bed.
Mix formula and massage into muscles or ask your partner to apply it for a relaxing back massage.
Measure all ingredients into a Ziploc-style bag. Seal shut and massage bag until oils are thoroughly mixed in. Add to a container, close lid tightly and label. Allow to sit for 24 hours. Shake well before every use. Before applying the powder, rub in at least 1/2 teaspoon F.C.O. with 3 drops Balsam of Peru on the bottom of each foot.
Add all ingredients to an 8-ounce fine-mist spray bottle. Shake well before every use. Use on plants already infested with insects, and mist the infected plants with as minimal amount as possible. Several applications, a few days apart, may be necessary. Can be used on indoor and outdoor plants.
Apply to desired targeted area.
