Make you own natural Insect Repellent

If you read the tiny print on a bottle of insect repellent like I did it’d spur you on to try something natural. You can make your own insect repellent without any harmful chemicals.It also doubles as a moisturising oil.

You only need five ingredients to make the oil. I used to buy my oils from my local health shop but all too often they are far to over-priced. I buy mine online from a soap supplier. Ebay is also a good place to find aromatherapy shops.

  • 8 drops lemongrass
  • 8 drops geranium
  • 8 drops catnip
  • 5 drops eucalyptus
  • 1/4 cup of soyabean base oil

Add all of the ingredients into a bottle, put the lid on and shake well to mix ingredients. Rub the oil all over your skin. The mixture will keep for up to a year, no need to keep it in the fridge.

And there we go, no more mosquito dodging!
