A “natural tick repellent

Rose-Geranium Oil
A “natural tick repellent,” this is an all natural alternative to deet-based sprays and other harsh chemical repellents.
Try a drop between your dog’s shoulder blades and one at the top of the base of tail. Put a drop on your pant legs while out hiking. #tickrepellent

Anti-Fungal Baby Wipes

1/2 c. distilled water
1 TBS vinegar
1/4 c. Aloe Vera gel
1 TBS. Calendula oil
1 drop Lavender essential oil
1 drop Tea Tree Essential Oil

From one of our readers “I made these wipes because I wanted something to gently discourage yeast diaper rashes. The vinegar and Essential Oils discourage yeast growth which
means you should not have too much trouble with these wipes getting moldy.”

To prepare, use a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Pour all your
ingredients in, cover the jar and shake to blend the ingredients. Place your wipes in a container and pour on enough solution to moisten them. Store any extra solution in the fridge. It should stay fresh for a long time especially if you used distilled water.

If a baby had a really red, raw Diaper Rash you might not want to use these wipes as vinegar may cause a burning sensation.
