All Natural Mosquito Repellent
What you need:
Empty bottle - this recipe is for a 1/2 quart bottle
3 TBS olive oil (keeps skin from drying out)
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol (helps mix adhere to skin)
10 drops each of geranium, citronella, and cedar wood
The ingredients cost about $25, but the oils will last long enough to make at least 8-10 batches. It's kind of like taking money out of one pocket, and putting it into the other one. If you are on a budget, you can replace the geranium with 5 extra drops each of the citronella and cedarwood.
Combine all ingredients and fill the bottle with distilled or filtered water. Shake well before each use.
