When nice, warm weather bathes the land, the world rejoices! Unless you’re a mosquito magnet. Here’s a natural repellent…

Dab one or two drops of lavender oil (available at health-food stores) on pulse points—including the inside of your wrists, inside your elbows, behind your ears and in back of your knees. The oil repels mosquitoes—and it smells great!

Caution: Be sure to use sparingly because the undiluted oil can cause a reaction, such as a rash, especially on sensitive skin. Stop using the lavender oil if you have the slightest reaction.
