DIY Bug Repellent

In a glass jar, take 1/4 cup of coconut oil and 10-20 drops of lemon eucalyptus oil. Mix them together. This can be applied directly to skin. It will act as an effective mosquito repellent. Coconut oil is the perfect carrier oil for mosquito repellents because its unique molecular structure prolongs the durability of the essential oil added to it.

Take thirty drops of lemon eucalyptus oil in a spray bottle and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and top with vodka or rubbing alcohol. Shake the container well so that all ingredients mix thoroughly.  The spray works for about 4 hours on an average.
