Don’t Bug Me DIY Insect Repellent

We wouldn’t call this aromatherapy — the scent of citronella (although we like it) and vinegar (eh) is quite strong — but we’d call it effective and natural, and avoids aerosols. This is a terrific spray to keep on hand when you’re in the garden during the Spring and Summer, or raking leaves in the Autumn.
