Take your sprigs of rosemary and remove the needles. Dry the needles overnight. Place them in a ball jar with oil, like olive or almond. Cover jar with muslin and put in a sunny window for a month. (just in time for summer if you do it this week!) Shake it gently without getting the material cover wet (every other day) and there you have a fool proof mosquito repellent. I add patchoulli essential oil, also, and never get a bite while other poor dears are swatting away, spraying toxic, expensive, spray that doesn't work as well. Try it on your pulse points, temples, wrists, neck, behind ears, knees, ankles, etc. Hope it helps! Remember if you want to go get essential oils at your natural food store, you could be mosquito-free, today! Blessings, all.
