Mosquito Repellent Lotion Bars
Oh it’s DIY Saturday and this is the second series and the last in our Mosquito Repellent series. Today we are making mosquito repellent lotion bars. I have been spending a lot of time in the garden lately trying to get rid of all those caterpillars that have been eating my basil like crazy. Organic gardening is tough especially when it comes to trying to get rid of pest in the garden. I only use natural insecticides in the garden and usually they help most of the time. However when it comes to mosquitoes in the garden, I have tried everything and they can be tough to get rid of. With Zika on the rise I decided to use mosquito repellent lotion bars to help keep them away.
I go into detail about the lotion bars and essential oils in the video, so please just watch. There have been so many episodes in DIY Saturday and I am so happy everyone loves the series.
