I am not very good at taking pictures for ya'll. Thought I'd use my Modern Essentials book and the current book I'm skimming that I borrowed from the library (Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens--can you guess what's in our near future??) for the background. Also used my new rolls of washi tape that I love! Thanks for the idea Camp Wander
ok, back to the insect repellant :0)!
I found a recipe at two different places on the web.
Natural Homemade Mosquito Spray
DIY: Insect Repellant
So, I tweaked them and came up with my own. Here it is:
Dawn's Bug Beware
12 oz Witch Hazel
15 drops citronella essential oil
15 drops lemongrass essential oil
10 drops peppermint
10 drops tea tree (melaleuca)
10 drops eucalyptus
I put these into several different size glass spray bottles.
1 - 2 oz. bottle For the van
3 - 1 oz. bottles For the car, truck, and my purse.
So there you have it. We will be giving it a try and I will update in a few weeks or so and let you all know how it's working.
All essential oils can be purchased at Spark Naturals. Be sure to use code "sonshine" for a 10% discount.
