Some natural mosquito repellents my boyfriend showed me in a supermarket circular:
- Spray Listerine on yourself. Pass. I don’t need people wondering why I have fresh breath ALL OVER.
- Dab vanilla extract on your pulse points. Also pass. Vanilla gives boyfriend headaches, and would probably give me cookie cravings.
- Eat garlic. Pass. Some of my best friends are vampires, including myself. I mean, just look at me. Or imagine me, I guess, since I don’t tend to show up on film.
- Wear lavender essential oil. Okay, now this one I’ll try, since it’s just pretty much perfume. In fact, I gave it a shot today, and I’m happy to say I didn’t get a SINGLE mosquito bite. Of course, the screens on the windows may have had something to do with that, but I’m not splitting hairs over here.
So what’s your vote? Let me know in the comments below.
I don’t bite either, except maybe after dark. Bwah ha ha ha ha.
