DIY CAT REPELLANT All you need is orange peels. Just orange peels and water! Place your orange peels in a pot & cover them with water.

When it's cool enough, you can pour it into a bottle & you have an easy way to help keep your cats out of any unwanted spots or to use as a nice freshener.
BUG OFF! - Here’s what you’ll need: essential oils (citronella and lemongrass are musts, I also like lavender or you could use tea tree oil or geranium oil for tick protection), 14 oz. bottle of witch hazel (available in grocery stores & pharmacies usually close to the rubbing alcohol), a spray bottle (or two–one for home and one for the diaper bag/car), a jar for mixing, and a funnel.
