Homemade bug repellent

We just mixed up a batch of oils that seem to be doing a good job against the TONS of mosquitoes around here.

We mixed:
2 TBS olive oil
6 drops eucalyptus essential oil
6 drops citronella essential oil
6 drops tea tree oil

I was nervous about putting this mixture directly on the kids skin, so we cut cotton knit strips and soaked them in the mixture, let them dry out a bit and tied them on wrists and ankles. Ended up being a fun project for Mia!
