Here is a great recipe for a Homemade Mosquito Repellent. I love that it is all natural with no chemicals at all! It will give me a piece of mind in knowing that it will help my family and I stay safe while enjoying the outdoors. It is very simple to make with only 4 ingredients and 1 spray bottle! We use this on the soccer field, at the pool or just hanging outside in the evenings. It works really well! Best of all I don’t feel that I have to bathe my son before bedtime because of using chemicals.
