Keeping Mosquitoes Away

Mosquitoes are the most aggravating little raiders and can be dealt with by a lot of essential oils, but  lavender and red thyme are the best. Put one drop on a strip of material, paper, or ribbon and place the strips around the yard or area you would like to keep bite-free.

Make an oil of 2 drops (lavender and/or red thyme)  in 2 teaspoons of oil for a body rub or simply add the essential oils neat to any lotion or cream you may have.

If you’re prone to biting, make a solution of 2 tablespoons base vegetable oil and 30 drops lavender oil and rub on the parts of skin that exposed. (This is also a good oil to put on before bed to keep bed bugs at bay.)
