Healthy Living: Natural Mosquito Repellant


Natural Mosquito RepellantI don’t know if you’ve seen the news yet that the mosquitoes this year are “super mosquitoes.”

While the drought has reduced the number of mosquitoes buzzing around, the ones who are menacing tender flesh everywhere are more virulent than their forefathers. Made stronger by surviving the dry season, the super mosquitoes bite more frequently, according to reports.

We love to sit outside, but I do not love to be riddled with itchy mosquito bites.

I also don’t love slathering chemicals all over my body unless it becomes absolutely, positively necessary.

This simple, natural trick helps keeps mosquitoes at bay while you’re enjoying dinner outside or simply relaxing with a cup of coffee and a book. The bonus is that it looks pretty and smells good, too!

Slice limes in half and stud cut half with about a dozen whole cloves. Mosquitoes don’t like the smell and will stay away from your party. Problem solved, no chemicals involved.
