Home Made Mosquito Repellent




This is a recipe that was sent to me. It has come from https://www.facebook.com/kelly.bagnasco. This recipe can be easily made at home and a must, to keep handy when sitting outside at BBQ season.

Combine in a 16 oz bottle:
15 drops lavender oil
3-4 Tbsp of vanilla extract
1/4 Cup lemon juice.
Fill bottle with water.
Shake and ready to use.

Fill a presentable spray bottle with this repellent and give it to your host as a gift when invited to a BBQ. In my opinion it is a very acceptable gift.
