I have two favorite uses for Catnip Hydrosol: insect repelling sprays and antifungal blends.
Shelf life: up to 2 years stored properly.
Safety: no known issues
Bug Repelling Spritzer Recipe: In a 2 ounce spritzer bottle, add 1 tsp castile soap and a total of 30 drops essential oils with insect repelling properties (patchouli, lemongrass, peppermint, geranium, cedarwood, etc.), then top off the bottle with catnip hydrosol. Shake well before each use and spray on/around clothing, shoes, hats.
