|Pour the Witch Hazel into a larger glass jar and add your preferred essential oils. Approximately 15 drops each of Lemongrass, Citronella and Geranium, 10 drops each of optional oils.

Close the jar tightly and shake well until all mixed (it will be cloudy looking). Pour into a spray bottle for use and label correctly. Use on exposed body parts and rub in well.
