I found the Vinegar of the Four Thieves insect repellent good for use on my horse, dogs, and myself in mountainous bee/hornet/yellow jacket/biting fly country. I tried the Plantain (white man's moccasin) poultice yesterday when I got nailed by a yellow jacket. It worked so well, I could not even find where I got stung the next day. I also use Nettle / vinegar rinse on my hair. Although it is too late to keep gray color out, people continue to tell me my hair looks very healthy. So, thank you for your information. ~Tina
