All natural Mosquito spray ~ Cheryl's Delights

 

 

This is basically herbal tea made from things mosquitoes do not like.  However it smells very lovely to me!  The best part about this spray is that it is safe for kids and pets.  My kiddos LOVE this spray.  My 18 month old son sprays this stuff in his mouth.  He drinks more than we use for the bugs; crazy kid.

Safe, tasty, and fragrant… can’t go wrong there!

(yes that is a Merlot in the back ground… Red Rock, it is quite tasty!)

 

3-4 sprigs mintAll natural Mosquito spray ~ Cheryl's Delights

2-3 sprigs rosemary

1-2 cloves

2 cups water

Heat the water to just boiling.  Add the herbs and spice allow to cool covered for an hour or longer.  Poor into a spray container.

Use:  apply as needed (every hour or so).

You can use any mint or a combination of mints.  Catnip is best.  I have used plain ole mint, peppermint, lemon balm, and chocolate mint.  They all seem to work.  The peppermint and lemon balm work better than the regular mint.

No deet; how cool is that, kids can ingest this without worries (unless your child has an allergy to any of the herbs).
