The rains aren’t that great a time for everyone. While long walks in the rain, and road trips with friends are great, rushing to office in the pouring rain, mold in the house, and uninvited buzzing visitors sure do put a damper on things. And if you have “sweet” blood (like some of us), the vampires come out in droves to bleed you dry!
But what if you could easily thwart the little monsters from eating you alive, and leaving your body looking like an alien attack? All you need are some simple ingredients and a floating candle, and you can bid those mosquitos goodbye!
What you need:
1. Mason jars
2. Floating candles
6. Lemongrass essential oil
What to do:
Slice one lemon and one lime. If they are large ones, you should be able to use them for two candles, if they are small ones, one each can be used for each candle.
After adding slices of each to the mason jar(s), add some sprigs of basil on top. Follow this up by filling up the jar with water up to the neck of the jar.
Now add about 10-15 drops of the lemongrass oil, and stir the jar contents lightly.
Add the candle to the top, and light it up.
Now all you have left to do is to enjoy your time free of mosquitos!
Have a great week!
