The Citronella scent is known to repel mosquitoes,
You can just put a few drops in a diffuser or burner at night for a mosquito-free sleep

Please note that citronella is not recommended for pregnant women.


When outside, you can simply cut a fresh lemon to half and rub your skin with its juice, it will soothe the skin and prevent more bites.


In case you are already bitten, rub a few drops of Lavender essential oil to stop the itching and heal the skin.
Just put the cards in their christmas stocking and PRESTO! They get it now! It's like you're the harry potter of permaculture. richsoil.com/cards
