Fisherman’s Friend using essential oils

by Penny Keay

Every avid fisherman – especially those here in Minnesota are getting ready for the spring and summer fishing season.

As you go through your tackle box and fishing gear you might want to add a bottle or two of essential oils to your box too!

We have been told that adding a little Anise essential oil your lures is supposed to attract fish. Personally I have not tried it but if the fish are not biting, you have nothing to lose, right?

The other bottle might be a little Lemon or Orange. Add a drop or two to a damp cloth and you can easily remove the ‘fishy’ and ‘wormy’ smells from your hands.

This is best done when you are finished fishing for the day!

What about all those pesky bugs? You know the ones that fly around your head and try to bite you! Here is a quick bug repellent blend that has worked for many.

Yet another Insect repellent!

Bergamot - 4 drops
Pine needle - 4 drops
Tea Tree - 4 drops
Eucalyptus globulus globulus - 3 drops
Patchouli - 2 drop
Peppermint - 1 drop

Mix this blend and add to 1 ounce of Sunflower oil or Jojoba and apply on the skin before going out doors to repel insects (mainly mosquitoes) from bothering you.

If you will be in the sun, omit the Bergamot from this recipe as Bergamot can cause a photosensitization reaction to occur in some people or use Bergamot FCF.

We have a couple of great and effective bug repellent blends so please check out our order page for them.

One more thing, before I forget, especially for those of you that are stream or trout fishing enthusiasts, is you might want to get some unscented Talc Powder,

We have heard from one of our Montana customers that uses the unscented Talc Powder. He says it makes getting your waders on and off much easier. And as he also commented – you don’t want any ‘baby powder’ scent to distract and scare off the elusive trouts!
