Tea Tree Oil as Insect Repellent
Instead of spending good money on expensive insect repellent, dab a few drops of tea tree oil on most of your pulse-points like your wrists, behind the ears and knees. Don't forget to dab a drop atop of your cleavage, ladies!
I have used this for years as a repellent and if you forget to use it, it will also heal bad insect bites. I personally love the smell too.

I, too, love tea tree oil. It is also good as an antiseptic, antiviral, and antibacterial medicine.

I live in the UK. We can buy it in any supermarket eg. Tesco, Asda,etc.
Most probably in USA, it's the same. I know that healthfood shops carry it too, over here.

I'm sure you all know to keep it (and you wearing it) far away from cats and some dogs. It's been known to cause seizures and sometimes death.
