Spring has sprung. Sadly it has brought that southern scourge, the mosquito, along with it.
At our house we are locked in a constant battle with them.
I’ve scoured the internet for some good options to try to protect us from them.
Fingers crossed that at least one of them works.
HERBAL INSECT REPELLANT
1 1/2 teaspoons assorted essential oils (citronella, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, lavender, cedar, rosemary, catnip and/or rose geranium)
4 ounces distilled witch hazel
Mix ingredients in a 4-ounce spray bottle. Shake well. Spray onto exposed skin, avoiding eyes and mucous membranes. Reapply every 30-60 minutes, or as needed.
