Do you ever feel like your summer evening party is ruined by bugs and mosquitos? While trying to relax on a warm summer night, it’s almost as if each mosquito invited their extended family to your picnic and you might as well advertise yourself as ‘free food.’
Many people don’t like spraying on bug spray that you have to wash off your body later and often times it can ruin your clothes. Luckily there is an all-natural way that the Center of Disease Control recommends to keep those pesky mosquitos out of the vicinity of you and your guests.
All you need are some mason jars, tea candles, lemons, limes, sprigs of rosemary, and lemon eucalyptus oil. If your’e not sure where to buy lemon eucalyptus oil, you can purchase on Amazon – just be sure to read the ingredients and verify that it’s all-natural.
First, slice up 1-2 lemon wedges, and 1-2 lime wedges and place these in your mason jar. Next, take a couple sprigs of rosemary and gently rub them in between your fingers to release the oils before placing them inside the jar. Then add 7-10 drops of lemon eucalyptus oil and fill the remainder of the jar with warm water. Finally, add your tea candles and let your all-natural repellant do its thing!
For other variations of this recipe try adding or using mint and citronella oil.
