Introduction: All Natural Mosquito Spray

One of the cons of summer, I'm sad to say, is the Mosquitos. Itchy, swollen, red lumps on your arms and legs is probably the most annoying thing during the summer.
But who wants to put on smelly, oily mosquito spray when you want something all-natural and clean?
Here is the solution, the all-natural mosquito salve! It's easy to make, and you only need things from your pantry!

Step 1: You Will Need…

• a spray bottle (I don't have one in the pictures, sorry!)
• cinnamon
• thyme
• basil
• lavender oil
• witch hazel or olive oil (I used witch hazel because I don't want to smell like something cooking with all the spices and then oil)

Step 2:

Put the lavender oil and the witch hazel in equal parts inside your bottle

Step 3:

Put in the spices (Equal parts- about 1/4 of a teaspoon)

Step 4:

Close the bottle, give it a good shake, and let sit for 6 hours before use. Before using, give the bottle a good shake to mix the bottles contents.

Since it's a salve, I would assume you apply it 'after' you've been bitten . It should relieve the itching .

Yeah, I need to see some proof. Is it a repellant? A killer?
