Well, it is the week of July 4th, officially mosquito season…
Mosquitos are not fun, and can be very dangerous as well. They carry many diseases, some of them fatal.
SO, if the mosquitos seem to love to bite you – like they do me – then try my new summer all natural mosquito repellant.
A friend at church told me about Lavender Oil, and I had previously read about Coconut Oil, so I decided to combine them, and give it a try.
Here is my recipe:
Diane’s All natural mosquito repellant.
You will need:
Coconut Oil (I use LouAna brand from my grocery store or big box store)
Lavender Essential oil (I got mine online last year, but most health food stores have it)
Small glass or plastic container (I bought a plastic one at the dollar store. Be sure it is able to hold 1/4 cup or more – or make a smaller amount)
Mix ingredients together in a small container:
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
5 – 10 drops of Lavender Essential oil. (Depending on how strong you want it to be)
That’s it! Easy as can be!
Now, just rub the mixture on any exposed skin before you go outside.
It is great for your skin and keeps the mosquitos away. I have been using it this summer & it has worked great for me!
Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!
I hope you have a fun July 4th weekend with family and friends – and NO mosquitos!
