Herbal Mosquito Repellent


Here’s a recipe I learned from @capraecavoli . I tried it right away and it works very well!

Collect a handful of

-sage

-lavender

-rosemary

-lemon balm or lemon verbena

-geranium or pelargonium graveolens

Don’t worry if you don’t have them all, use whatever you have in hand.
-Put them in a clean glass jar.Cutting them into small pieces helps extracting more of the plant essence.

-Add white vinegar or any vinegar with 5% acidity until you cover all the plant material.

-Close the lid, put it in a dark cool place and wait 1-2 weeks

-Strain the vinegar through a strainer or a cheesecloth and pour it in a spray bottle.

That’s it!
