Use this natural mosquito repellent all summer to rid your table of unwanted pests. It smells great, is pretty, and is very simple to put together.
You will need a lime, Lemon Eucalyptus 100% essential oil, fresh rosemary sprigs, a floating candle, a lemon, and a pint sized jar.
Place two slices each of lemon and lime in your jar. Cut your rosemary sprigs to fit vertically in your jar.
Pour about 10 drops of the Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil into your jar. This is the active ingredient that repels mosquitoes. Fill the jar the rest of the way with tap water.
Place your floating candle on top and rearrange your ingredients, if necessary, so that the candle can float properly. Take it outside and light your candle. Enjoy!
