Mr. Brown Socks as well as two of our three daughters are extremely sensitive to mosquitoes. When bitten their skin reacts right away with a HUGE welt…I mean HUGE! It is unreal. They didn’t get that from my side of the family. ;)
Last summer we ran across this recipe for insect spray in our local newspaper and low and behold it truly works very well, plus you aren’t spraying harmful chemicals on your body. Now that’s a good thing. Mr. Brown Socks even took it with him on a camping trip with a few other family members. The mosquitoes were horribly bad. Everyone was fighting for the bottle of spray and even using it on the dogs! They were all asking for the recipe.
Here’s our little secret:
2 cups water
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup Avon Skin-So-Soft Bath Oil
1 T. eucalyptus Oil
Shake in a spray bottle and let settle before spraying
In the meantime, Miss Maggie was making sure to keep mosquitoes off the hummingbirds. She promised she was just out getting a little fresh air.
Wipe that smile off your face, young lady!
Hope you don’t have any bugs in your life today!
