How to make a do-it-yourself natural repellent against flies and mosquitoes to enjoy a summer without insect bites
With the summer, besides the heat and good weather, a myriad of annoying insects inevitably arrive and mosquito bites, especially, become the order of the day.
Currently, there are many chemical products on the market that can remove these nasty little creatures!
However, every time we use a repellent spray on our body, or we insert one of those classic mosquito repellant mats into an electric heater, we must also think about our health.
Therefore, why not try some natural solutions instead of spending money on toxic products?
In fact, in this article, we want to suggest one these natural solutions --- and show you how to make a do-it-yourself natural insect repellent!
This repellent does not kill insects, but keeps them away. It works very well against flies and mosquitoes ... try it!
The main ingredients are the following:
- 4 glass jars
- 40 drops of essential cedar oil (wood)
- 40 drops of lavender essential oil
- 40 drops of lemon essential oil
- 40 drops of citronella
- 2 lemons
- 2 limes
- 8 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- Floating tealights (candles)
Cut the lemons and limes into slices, bearing in mind that all four glass jars must contain the same quantity of ingredients. Put two sprigs of rosemary on each slice of citrus fruit and fill the jar with water about 3/4 full.
Add the essential oils: Add 10 drops of each oil for each jar and shake vigorously, so as to mix the essential oils well. Add another slice of lemon and lime to the jar and, if you see that it is not filled up enough, add some more water.
Once this step is finished, you can light the floating candles inside the glass jar. And that's it!
Fantastic! Now, for this summer you can say goodbye to the most annoying insects!
