Note: use caution and spray only a light mist. Essential oils have been known to dissolve paint and other finishes and so do not saturate the areas – just a light mist.

An alternative to spraying this is to use several Oil and Tart warmers. Mix just the essential oils together (omit the Emulsifier and distilled water).

Then add the essential oil blend to the melted Soy Wax tarts. Stir carefully.

You will want to place several oil and tart warmers around your patio so the air around your BBQ will have the protective scent of this blend to help ‘shoe all the bugs’ away!
