2oz Vodka (we used Smirnoff)
6 drops of 100% pure lavender oil
6 drops of 100% pure peppermint oil

Mix in a glass spray bottle. It has be to glass because of the oils.
You now have a chemical free deodorant that works great.
My sons MIL is really into essential oils. We were talking about chemicals in deodorant that (possibly) cause breast cancer. She said she's been using this mixture for years. She made me a bottle and I agree, it's great.

I'm going to ask her for a bug repellent mix/recipe.

Just so you know what chemicals you are actually dealing with:

Chemical composition of pure lavender oil: The main chemical components of lavender oil are a-pinene, limonene, 1,8-cineole, cis-ocimene, trans-ocimene, 3-octanone, camphor, linalool, linalyl acetate, caryophyllene, terpinen-4-ol and lavendulyl acetate.


The chemical components of peppermint oil are menthol, menthone, 1,8-cineole, methyl acetate, methofuran, isomenthone, limonene, b-pinene, a-pinene, germacrene-d, trans-sabinene hydrate and pulegone.
