Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Sun is out and weather is getting is warmer. Folks are getting excited about camping and RVing.  Concerned about Ziki virus carried by mosquitoes, several of my patient asked what natural bug spray they can use.

In addition not to camping near standing water where mosquitoes breed, you can use this homemade mosquito repellent that is very effective.  It’s also less toxic and more economical then the store bought mosquito repellent.

Combine in a 16 oz spray bottle:
– 15 drops of lavender oil
– 3-4 Tbsp of vanilla extract
– 1/4 cup lemon juice

Then fill the bottle with water, shake & you’re ready to use.
