|Nothing dampens the mood of an outdoor event faster than getting eaten by bugs. This spell will help to keep them from pestering you without the use of chemical deterrents.
You will need a piece of cedar or a drop of cedar oil, a two-ounce bottle of natural vanilla extract, and a small(four- to eight-ounce) spray bottle. Place the cedar and the vanilla in the spray bottle, and fill it with water. Shake well, then mist yourself all over with the blend, envisioning the bugs leaving you alone and saying:
"I mean you no harm, creeping crawlies of the earth,
But leave me alone to celebrate my mirth."
Reapply the mist as necessary, repeating the words again.
