DIY Recipe of the Month: Summertime Peach Liquor • The Organic Alcohol Company

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

The long slow days of August are upon us and the hot summer weather has settled in. As a child, August was bittersweet with the return to school and friends on the horizon. Now still, I catch scents of fall, feel the cooler nights, and know these lazy hot days won’t last forever. Taking advantage of all that this season offers, we at OAC are getting outside, soaking in the sun, and eating as many fresh summer fruits and veggies from the local markets as we can get!

Certified organic alcohols – Organic Grape Alcohol, Organic Corn Alcohol, Organic Cane Alcohol, Organic Wheat Alcohol – are used for herbal extracts, natural perfumes, homeopathic medicines, body care products, alcoholic beverages, and more.

DIY RECIPE OF THE MONTH: ORGANIC BUG REPELLENT

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

It’s that time of year for patio-chillin’, outdoor grillin’, and camping adventures. When you are looking for something that isn’t laden with chemicals that will keep the pesky insects away, try this DIY Bug Repellent.

I sometimes change up the essential oils I use, but following the lead of many other home-made bug spray recipes, find this blend to be the best in practice (and smells fantastic!). The oil you don’t want to skip is the Citronella because of its power to keep the buzzing at bay.

As with all Essential Oils (EO), test on sensitive skin first to make sure you don’t have any adverse reactions and avoid eyes.

(Added bonus, I sometimes steep rosemary and lavender in my water and witch hazel mix, store in the fridge for a few days before adding to the blend for added oomph!)
