Sis Lori here...
My son's outdoor wedding is coming up fast. The couple has had a handle on it for a while, planning and planning. I am not expected to do much at all except enjoy, that's nice.
It is outdoors in the early evening and is by a large lake. With hot weather looming, I thought we could be bothered by bugs in the evening hours while enjoying the venue. I searched on Pinterest and found a homemade bug spray recipe. Here are the supplies:
And here is the recipe: 1/3 cup witch hazel and 1/2 teaspoon each of 3 oils, eucalyptus, citronella and lemongrass. Stir well and pour in bottle with a spray top.
They needed to be somewhat festive for the wedding, so I wrapped the baroque-style duct tape around the containers and added labels. There will be one on each table. They can be taken home by guests when the evening is over. I imagine they will be much appreciated that evening!!
