Interested in having a
Make It and Take It
workshop in your community?
! WHE staff will present on
Creating a Healthy Home
and provide hands on activities for Do-It-Yourself green recipes. Below is a recipe for a DIY insect repellent:
Herbal Mosquito Repellent Spray
* 14 ounces Witch Hazel
* 10 ml (2 tsp) Citronella Essential Oil
* 10 ml (2 tsp) Eucalyptus Essential Oil
* 10 ml (2 tsp) Lemongrass Essential Oil
(You can also add clove, patchuli, and/or tea tree essential oils)
Mix ingredients together, shake well and pour into spray bottles(s). To store more than a month or two, it is best to keep the spray in a glass bottle or you can halve the recipe.
Give the bottle a shake each time you spray. If it's hot and you're perspiring, re-apply every few hours.
