Natural Insect Repellents


Well summer is finally here and we are forced to deal with those pesky mosquitos!  My six-year-old gets extreme swelling and pain when she is bitten so I’ve been doing my homework on how to protect her without using chemicals.  Here are a few little pearls that I have stumbled upon–

Lavender and geranium oil—use a small spray bottle with distilled water and add 30 drops of either oil

Lemon eucalyptus oil—again use a small spray bottle filled with distilled water and add 30 drops

Here is a tricky little thing:

Brew a strong pot of either parsley, basil or lemon balm tea and then once it is cooled —rub it on your skin

You can also use essential oils in the tea as well
