It's actually interesting to me because I didn't even think there were more than possibly 5, or even fewer than five recipes for bugs, but from this book, you can make 75 different nontoxic recipes. Also, it's not only for humans but for pets as well! You can't forget the pets! So with these recipes, I find I may have to try and firstly attempt the ones with Lavander since I have plenty on hand. Plus, I honestly love the smell and color and just everything about that plant and oil it provides. However, any recipe inside this book is listed with helpful guidance and steps to creating each one. Also, if you are curious about the herb used, you can search the ingredient dictionary in the beginning section of the book.
Plus, after you create the recipe, it will tell you how to apply and when to apply again. I know it sounds like more work to apply over and over or even to create it, but for a healthy body protected from bugs and being irritable outdoors, I am ok with the extra steps! So, all in all, I am proud to own a copy and would recommend this to all my natural recipe lovers, who want a healthy way to protect themselves against bugs.
