While I'm over here...

Although there are some good ones on the market, I make my own. If I'm hanging out in my back yard, I slice some limes and poke a bunch of cloves in them - that does the trick for mosquitos.

To spray on yourself, you can easily make your own. Fill a spray bottle halfway with distilled (or boiled) water, fill the other half with witch hazel, then add some essential oils - I like citrus, clove, eucalyptus, but you can do some online research and find a combination that you can live with.

This all started with me having a child with autism, and it blossomed into me making sunscreen and bug repellant, curing lice with essential oils, making my own lotion, and even making my own bug repellant for my rose bushes...As an added bonus, this stuff is all much cheaper than buying things ready made.
