We just mixed up a batch of oils that seem to be doing a good job against the TONS of mosquitoes around here.

We mixed:

2 TBS olive oil, 6 drops eucalyptus essential oil, 6 drops citronella essential oil, 6 drops tea tree oil.  I was nervous about putting this mixture directly on the kids’ skin, so we cut cotton knit strips and soaked them in the mixture, let them dry out a bit and tied them on wrists and ankles.  Ended up being a fun project for Mia!
