Insect repellent – Citronella


Citronella and Lemongrass

The essential oils of citronella and lemongrass are very useful insect repellents. They can be used safely in the home, especially in the kitchen, or outdoors in a confined area, tent etc.


Simply clean a spray bottle thoroughly, add 10-12 drops of lemongrass or/and citronella to a pint of water, shake well and you have an eco-friendly insect repellent which smells pleasantly of lemons. Or use the mixture in an oil burner to keep flies away.
