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.
