Mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus are very dangerous and the problem continues to grow in north Texas. It is very important that you protect yourself and your family; the days of sitting outside without protection are gone. Here is a simple recipe for a homemade mosquito repellant that even has a pleasant sell and dressed up in a nice little spray bottle can even make a great gift for your friends and family.

What you will need to make your own easy and pleasant Mosquito repellent

  1. 15 drops of lavender oil
  2. 3-4 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  3. ¼ cup lemon juice

Add to a 16 oz spray bottle – fill with water and shake

Show someone you are thinking of them and care about them by giving these to your party guest as they arrive at your next outdoor event!
