How To Make A Simple Homemade Mosquito Repellent

en.wikipedia.org

It’s been one of the worst summers ever for mosquitos. 

Let’s start with the fact that it’s been so humid and wet. My poor ankles are so chewed up that I don’t think there is anywhere left for them to bite.

These darn mosquitos are taking away from nighttime swimming. It’s just too unbearable.

Even going to watch my kids play sports at night is too much. If I sit still, I get chewed up.  People think I’m crazy, as i am constantly moving around to try and keep them away.

Here’s an at home solution:

Combine in a 16 oz. bottle:

15 drops lavender oil
3-4 tbsp of vanilla extract
1/4 cup of lemon juice

Fill the bottle with water, shake, and you’re ready to use.
