A lot of people have asked us how to make your own mosquito repellent. Well, there's a couple things you can do as a homeowner to accomplish this task. Number one, you can use eucalyptus oil. One ounce of eucalyptus oil in six onces of water, and you mix that up in to a, a, a little mixture, mix it up, pour it in to a hand spritzer bottle, and you can spray that on your skin. That will help. Or, you can use lemon balm in, two ounces of lemon balm in two ounces of water, and you can also mix that up and use that in a hand spritzer bottle and spray that on as well. Both of these products are, are good repellents, and they may or may not work for you, depending on your particular skin type. Remember, there's always a few other ways that you can get around this. I've hear do things like Skin-So-Soft is another good product that you might use in place of this, but if you like making your own, you want to be organic, try those two suggestions, and they may help you repel those mosquito's from your area.
