    I use eucalyptis oil, lavander and citronela. Works wonders with sandfiles and big horse flies too. Also, smells awesome and the lavander also has a calming affect on both horse and rider so chuck some on you too :P
    I use a litre bottle with 10ml of each.

    I can't use eucalyptus because I have a family member that's also active in horses that's deadly allergic to it and TBH I don't like the smell if eucalyptus. Might try some lavender oil tho!

    I have used garlic mixed with water as a mosquito repellant. It might have the same effect on flies.

    Listerine is also excellent for healing wounds. It works miracles on hot spots on dogs.

    We make our own fly spray with tea tree oil, vinegar and dish soap. It works amazing.

    Ahh, our "hippie creations" for our horses....
