Keeping Insects Away With Herbs

 

Essential Oils aren’t the only way to keep bugs away. Crush 2 cups of one or a combination of these fresh herbs with a mortar and pestle:

 

Lemongrass

Lavender

Lemon Thyme

Mountain Mint

Orange Peel

Citronella

Patchouli

Vetiver

Sandalwood

 

Place the herbs in a glass quart jar and cover with 2 cups apple cider vinegar. Use a plastic lid to seal the jar (vinegar corrodes metal). Shake every day for 3 to 7 days. Filter vinegar within a week and use within a year.
