My Oil of the Week – Bug Repellent Blend

Summer is here. I think? (It was 39 degrees here overnight last week and my basil took a beating!) But around here  summer means bugs. And lots of them. Ants galor, spiders, mosquitos and everyone’s worst fear… ticks.  After finding a tick in Juliette’s ear last year I have learned a lot about these dreading,…
