Repell Those Pesty Mosquitos:
For a safe alternative to potentially harmful insecticides, place
three drops of peppermint, citronella,
or eucalyptus essential oil on your socks. Mosquitoes and other bugs
hate the smell of these oils.
Don't apply essential oils to your favorite socks, as they can
stain. Some eo's may cause skin irritation,
so avoid direct contact. Reapply the eo every two to three hours.
