Insect Repellent


I litre boiling water

I garlic clump

1 small bar sunlight soap grated

100 ml liquid paraffin


Liquidise garlic with boiling water, sieve. Add grated soap, liquid paraffin and stir until dissolves. Put into wide open neck jar and keep lid on. Keep in Fridge. It does whiff a bit!


TIP!  Add a Habanero Chilli or two to the mixture of the garlic!  It kind of makes the bugs feel really uncomfortable.  They (Bugs) have an intense nervous system so with the chilli and garlic, it will put them into stress Big Time!

2 teaspoons with one litre of water in a spray bottle.
