Pennyroyal oil is dangerous for people. Highly toxic and also a danger for pregnant women.
Absorbs through the skin. Causes liver failure and death if you get enough exposure.

If you want to keep bugs out of an attic or barn or boat, putting a few drops on a piece of wood or something is probably OK, but I darn sure would keep it off my skin.

I didn't watch the video but supposedly crushed catnip rubbed on your skin will keep mosquitoes away. So will yarrow leaves on a smidge fire. I haven't tried either so I can't say it they work.

Cedar Oil sold as cedarside will keep the buggers away and will also Kill Ants and other crawlers. Can be put on infants and small kittens and pups
Cedarside probably has a new name now but I think you can still find it. I have no stake in this company.
