It’s the middle of the summer and you have unwelcome guests at your picnic or outdoor gathering: bugs! You regularly use store-bought bug repellents to keep the pesky critters away, but you really want to try using something less toxic.
Well, you could buy more natural repellents. However, I suggest that you try making some of them yourself. You’ll save money, plus you’ll know exactly what ingredients you used.
So, if you are ready to make your own, here are a few ideas:
