    I thought this was easy to make. There is not even one thing listed that I am familiar with or even have in my house.

    Where can I buy all these things? Never heard of most of them.

      I buy pretty much everything online and I’ve linked to sources. But arrowroot powder can be found in the organic baking section of a grocery store and colloidal oatmeal in a pharmacy.

    Can I substitute cornstarch for the arrow root powder?

    Just wondering how often to apply this? And is the neem oil the only ingredient that repels the insects? Does the peppermint or Rosemary essential oils? Or could I use different essential oils? Thanks!

      The neem and essential oils help to repel biting insects. However you can swap out the eo’s with others known for their biting insect repelling properties like lavender, lemongrass, etc.

    Can I use this recipe for my cat as well? Or, like most dog shampoos, would it be too strong for her?
