homemade skeeter repellent.
Garlic Repellent
There is good reason that they say that garlic repels vampires. Mosquitos hate the stuff!

You’ll Need:
• Minced Garlic
• Mineral Oil
• Lemon Juice
• Cheesecloth

Mince a few cloves of garlic and cover them with mineral oil. Allow them to sit and soak for 24 hours. After they are done soaking, remove the minced garlic chunks and mix the oil with 2 cups water and 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice. Strain everything through a cheesecloth and add to a spray bottle.

Lemon Eucalyptus Repellent
You’ll Need:
• Lemon Eucalyptus Oil
• Sunflower Oil (or Witch Hazel)

Mix 1 part lemon eucalyptus oil for every 10 parts of sunflower oil. You can rub the mixture on your skin or add it to a spray bottle and apply that way.

Lavender Mosquito Repellent

If you rub lavender flowers on your wrists, neck and behind your ears, you’ll smell great but you’ll also avoid mosquitoes. If you don’t have any lavender at the moment, you can always plant one in your yard.
