    To make Home made Insect Repellant  .

    Very important Ingredient are :-

    10 ml  Olive oil
    10 ml  Dettol Antiseptic
    10 ml  Citronella torch & lamp oil

    Step one :    Prepare an clean empty bottle
    Step two :     Mix all ingredients in bottle
    Step tow :    Shake them well

    Next its ready to use on skin just like other cream . ( apply it on hand , legs, )

    Remember shake the bottle first before use  and also the all ingredient measurement has to be equal .

    It works for me and my family used it years and years still do .

      Wonderful, I have been trying for years to figure something out that would actually work. And be cheap enough for us all. We camp a lot and can't seem to get those pesky things under control. Wonderful, wonderful hug. Thanks so much for sharing.

    What about your skin is absorbing all that stuff? Is it okay? I don't know anything about that dettol thing.

    Very true

    We also used tea tree oil and took brewers yeast tablet when tree planting. There would litteraly be clouds of mosquitoes in the morning and no see ums in the afternoon. Those of us that used this method would only have one or two bites a day
    Brewers yeast is also good to prevent fleas or ticks on dogs and cats

      We used to feed it to the dogs and cats but I never tried it myself.
      if you have an Avon distributor in your area, they are pretty much everywhere, try their Skin so Soft line.
      They have it as both a sunblock and a repellent. We used to just buy it as a lotion and it worked pretty well, non greasy and doesn't burn the eyes so much.
