    Homemade insect repellent (peppermint oil & rubbing alcohol). Can use on pets too. I'll give this a try .....wonder how well it works. Although in this lady's case.....putting a shirt on may also help with insects;)

    Peppermint oil--Since the mosquitoes are going to be on overload this season, I need to whip up a batch of this. Dilute 1 part peppermint oil with 10 parts rubbing alcohol and place the solution in a plastic spray bottle. This will allow you to use peppermint oil in broader applications, such as on plants, pets and clothing. You can also spray the solution on your skin, although you may want to rub a little on your forearm first to make sure it does not irritate your skin.
