Let the insects repel You

Updated on May 24, 2011
  1. Orange or Lemon Skins You will smell so good the mosquitoes will flee from you.You repel them.On your next outing pack the fruit. With the inside of peel rub onto skin and you have Eco free insect repellent. You can make fresh,Long Island Iced-Tea with the savings. Be safe and have fun.
  2. Save the Lemon and orange peels Dry the peels and walla you have fantastic, long lasting , great smelling fire starters. The oils in the fruits make the peels burn longer then twigs or paper. God is so cool. He gave us the fruits of the land to use for all sorts of advantages.
  3. Onion Do not let the bee sting. If you are near a white or yellow onion and the bee does sting pull the stinger out fast. Cut onion, rub on the sting. My mom only used baking soda if she was not near an onion. Pack a fat yellow or white onion on your next picnic Do not leave home without it. Seek Medical treatment if you have reaction to the sting. (not the onion, tee he)
  4. Garden Pests BE GONE . This is a natural repellent for insects or animals in your flower beds or vegetable gardens. Put 2 Table Spoons Soap flakes into a gallon of water, shake or stir,let sit. Now blend together (until soupy) 2 Tb Cayenne pepper, 1 quart water, 4 small onions (peeled), 2 cloves of garlic. Pour mixture into the soap flakes. Pour into spray bottle. Walla powerhouse potent, Eco friendly pesticide. Spray on your plants.Repel the critters. ( my friend found this in her moms cupboard and swears by it).

      Well, I will be danged! I camp a lot and never knew you could burn orange and lemon peels. Sure beats paper and twigs since they always seem to burn out before they catch the bigger stuff on fire! Thanks!!
