Bug Be Gone Stick

 
   Ingredients:
  Click on the ingredients for more information.
  30 drops Tea Tree Lemon
  15 drops Eucalyptus Smithii Wild Crafted
  30 drops Citronella
  1 ounce cocoa butter
  2 ounces Jojoba Carrier Oil
  1.5 ounces shea butter
  1.5 ounces beeswax
 
  Caution on small children. Measure all ingredients except essential oils into a heat proof measuring cup. (I use Pyrex.) Place the cup in a hot water bath until the wax is nearly fully melted. Remove from heat and stir well. After the wax is fully melted and incorporated into the oils, wait about 5 minutes for the mixture to cool a bit. Then, add the essential oils. Stir again to endure the mix. Pour the mixture into lip balm tubes or other stick type dispensers. Label and smooth on before going outside amongst the buggers. Note that the oil/wax mixture may melt in the sun so it's best to store it in a cooler or other insulated environment -- or be careful opening it in the sun.
