Clove Oil. Bugs don't like cloves. Put it into a spray bottle, add water, shake well and spray. Increase strength slowly to prevent an allergic reaction.
It works in natural flea repelents.

Quoting catholicmamamia:Lavender oil!
Same as with clove oil, I'd do clothes, not skin.

Skin So Soft, dryer sheets, citronella, catnip, lavender
What's a carrier oil and what does it do? *learning time* :)
Quoting jellyphish:Oh also, I wouldn't use clove oil topically unless mixed in a carrier oil, but spraying it on clothes and in the air is great.
Babyganics makes a non-toxic repellent. You can buy it at Babies R us.
