Casa Quickie: Organic Bug Repellent

As much as a I hate to have bugs in my personal space, I'm also repelled by having chemicals on my skin. I prefer to be free of those artificial substances whenever possible. When it comes to keeping bugs away, I live by the same rules. One simple way to make chemical-free bug repellent is to mix witch hazel with a few drops of tea tree, lavender, or peppermint oil in a spray bottle. Just shake the bottle before each use and lightly mist your skin, and you'll be free and clear of that bothersome buzzing. Voilà!

How does that work exactly? Is it the witch hazel, oils or the combination of the two that does the job? B/c I would rather just use the witch hazel on its own, if that's all that's necessary.
