Home made insect repellent: To create sprays, simply fill mist bottles with water and a few strips of julienned cucumber or sprigs of lavender and mint. Label bottles, and set them on a tray at your next backyard barbecue. Bonus: Cucumber is known for its hydrating properties, and lavender and mint are reputed insect repellents.- I like this idea for the girlies.
