Are Mosquitoes attacking you yet?

Spring is my favorite season.  However, with all the rain, comes mosquitoes and all those naught, painful bites.  Although, there are lots for different brands of mosquitoes repels most contain harmful chemicals which can affect your health and the health of your children.
Essential oils are a great alternative to toxin mosquito repels witthout the harmful chemicals like DEET?  Just, a couple of drops of essential oil mixed in with 1 oz of your favorite skin lotion is all it takes. Apply the lotion as you normally would and keep mosquitoes at bay! My Oil of Choice is Cinnamon essential oils. It smells great and repels mosquitoes (and flying insects) for hours.  My second choice is Cat Nip!
  *Caution - Cinnamon is a hot essential oil! Do not apply directly on the skin without a carrier (vegetable oil, lotion etc.) Cinnamon essential oil is highly concentrated, and can cause skin irritation if applied directly to the skin. A carrier will help dilute and disperse the oil.
