This is a great idea.
We used peppermint oil as bug repellent on the farm growing up. Much better for your health than the chemical alternatives.
Back then, we just juiced the swamp mint. Then left it in glass jars in the sun till it evaporated into a concentrate. Then we would smear the thick green juice onto our exposed skin.
Nature has everything we need. Most times, mankind is too dumb or lazy to use what is right in front of them.
