Simply put it in the kitchen, and all insects, including mosquitoes and flies, will go.

 


Instructions:

Combine Essential Oils: In a spray bottle, mix 30-50 drops of your chosen essential oils. The more oils you use, the stronger the repellent will be.
Add Witch Hazel or Alcohol: Fill about half of the bottle with witch hazel or rubbing alcohol.
Add Water: Fill the rest of the bottle with water. Leave a little space at the top to shake the mixture.
Add Vegetable Glycerin (optional): If you’re using glycerin, add a teaspoon to the mixture. This step is optional but recommended if you have dry skin.
Shake Well: Secure the lid and shake the bottle vigorously to ensure all ingredients are well mixed.
Test and Use: Do a patch test on your skin to ensure there’s no allergic reaction. Spray the repellent on exposed skin or clothing when needed. Reapply every few hours for maximum effectiveness.
Additional Tips:

Store the repellent in a cool, dark place to preserve its potency.
Always shake before use as the oils and water can separate.
For added protection, consider planting bug-repellent plants like citronella, lavender, and marigolds around your kitchen or in window boxes.
Remember, natural repellents are a safer alternative to chemical ones, but they may need to be applied more frequently.
