Tip of the Day: Ward Off Mosquitoes with Peppermint


Posted on : 25-05-2012 | By : georginesaves | In : Tip of the day

It’s that time of the year again when mosquitoes are starting to show up!  A safer, natural way to keep them from bugging and biting you is with peppermint. Combine 6 drops of peppermint essential oil (you can find this at a health food store) with 8 oz of water in a spray bottle (buy this at the Dollar Store). Shake well and spritz on your skin. In addition, wear light colored clothing, don’t wear perfume or cologne (the floral or fruity scents attract mosquitoes), and believe it or not,  physical activity brings out the little buggers because you produce more carbon dioxide, so take it easy!
