The weather has been crazy, last week snow in Vermont and now this week in the high 80's! Glad we didn't put our garden in but we sure will be busy this week planting. Hope all cold weather is gone for the season!

With all the rain we have been having it is beginning to be high time for those nasty mosquitoes. I hate using the harsh chemicals but up here its hard to keep the buggers away! I found this recipe and it is nontoxic and works pretty well though you may have to repeat application a bit more than traditional but don't worry it smells good!
How about you what repellants homemade or otherwise do you think work best?

Natural home made mosquito spray
Ingredients:

Ingredients:

12 oz bottle witch hazel (mine was lavender infused and had no alcohol or parabens)
15 drops citronella essential oil (I use a bit more)
15 drops lemon grass oil (I use a bit more)
10 drops peppermint essential oil
10 drops tea tree oil (optional, but it works againts ticks)
A funnel
An empty spray container

Mix all ingredients and pour into your spray bottle using your funnel. Apply generously and as often as needed.
