Recipes and ideas to make your own household items

Make your own homemade Insect repellent

To ward off mosquitoes, gnats, midges and other flying insects try one of these home recipes. I have 2 recipes for home made repellent that should keep mosqitoes, gnats, midges and other flying insects away from you

Recipe 1

  • 4 tablespoons of baby oil
  • 1 tablespoon of Dettol

Mix well together and apply to skin. Apparently the anglers in Scotland use it all the time and I suppose they should know how to keep midges away if anyone does !

Recipe 2

  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of water

Simply mix together and apply to the skin. You can also place some neat vanilla extract in a small open container where the gnats tend to congregate and this will keep them away.
