Craft Your Homemade Repellent

Are you tired of being bothered by mosquitoes and insects? Look no further! We have a natural and effective solution that you can easily create at home using baby oil and cloves. This homemade repellent will keep those pesky bugs away, allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors without any interruptions.

What You Will Need

To make your own repellent, you will need the following:

  • A dark glass dropper bottle
  • 35 ml of baby oil (olive oil can be used as an alternative)
  • 6 cloves

Steps to Create Your Repellent

Follow these simple steps to create your homemade insect repellent:

  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Gather all the necessary ingredients and equipment.
  2. Pour Baby Oil into Bottle: Take the dark glass dropper bottle and pour in 35 ml of baby oil. If you prefer, you can use olive oil instead.
  3. Add Cloves: Add 6 cloves to the bottle. These little wonders possess natural insect-repelling properties, making them perfect for our homemade repellent.
  4. Secure and Shake: Secure the cap tightly on the bottle and give it a good shake. This will help the oil mix with the cloves, ensuring that their repelling properties infuse into the oil.
  5. Infuse: Let the mixture sit for at least 10 seconds. During this time, the cloves will release their powerful aroma, further enhancing the repellent’s effectiveness.
  6. Application: Your homemade repellent is now ready to use! Before heading outdoors, apply a few drops to your exposed skin areas and gently rub it in. The baby oil will leave your skin feeling smooth, while the cloves keep the bugs away.
  7. Reapplication: Remember to reapply the repellent every few hours or as needed, especially if you have been sweating or swimming.

Now you can enjoy your time outside without worrying about those annoying bugs. Give this homemade repellent a try and experience the power of natural protection against insects. Stay bug-free and happy exploring!
