keep those insects away

February 6, 2016 Filed under Home health remedies

Here’s a handy and easy to prepare insect repellent that is safe on most skins, even babies.

Use equal amounts of dettol, baby oil and water. Mix together and put into a spray bottle and spray on to a makeup remover pad or similar so you can wipe it on to small children without the risk of getting it in their eyes.

If you do get bitten then use this remedy to stop the itching.
