Mom's Bug Repellent

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by BLUE ROSE

My mom made this for me to try and we all loved it. I hope this also helps you keep the bugs away. This was also safe for my relative to use who was pregnant to keep the bugs away.

I can never really tell if any kind of bug repelant works, but this one seemed to be just as good as the chemical ones you can buy. It was also very refreshing to spritz on in the hot GA weather! Made for PAC fall 09.
