All Purpose Insect Repellent Natural Spray

Insects they Bug us ( pun intended )  and annoy and can make us sick 

This Repellent is non toxic to humans and pets but DEADLY to all Insects
from Mosquitos, Ants, Carpenter ants, flies, Roaches, bed bugs, Gnats , Spiders  Scorpions, Ticks/ Fleas
This  KILLS and REPELS  all Insects  and this is not Expensive to make 
Very easy and Cheap to make  and no chemicals required

You need 

The Peel / Rind of  4 Lemons
The Peel/ Rind of 4 Oranges
The Peel/ Rind of 4 Limes
2 sticks of cinnamon Fresh is best 
1 Cup  Fresh Mint Leaves 
1 Cup Eucalyptus leaves  
1/3 cup of  Fresh or Dried Lavender 
1 cup of marigolds flowers just the head part  yes the flower fresh or dried works  
1/2 cup of Dried or fresh Rosemary
1 tablespoon of Thyme or oregano 
2 tablespoons mustard seeds
3 Tablespoons of Black peppercorns
Glass Jars with a lid Do not use plastic  it will not work please use GLASS ONLY
Vinegar White Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar the choice is yours but the Apple Cider Vinegar is Stronger and works better in my opinion 

now if you're allergic to Vinegar you can also use Witch Hazel its up to you  you can do half witch hazel and half vinegar if you prefer   Witch hazel also repels insects. 


Put all the Herbs and spices  in a Glass Jar (mason jar works Great )
Now Muddle  the Herbs if you do not know what Muddle means it means to Crush
Just Crush the leaves and herbs and spices all up 
once you have done that and gotten the oils  out
now add in the Vinegar until it it  1 inch from the top of the container.
and put it in a dark place LABELED so you don't lose it or throw it away by accident. 

Then you leave it alone for 3 weeks to STEEP and have patience .

Okay after 3 Weeks later   

Strain out the  herbs and spices using a Strainer   or Cheese cloth if its easier .
and strain the liquid into another mason jar  or glass container lets call this the Insect Brine
you can take the solids and put them around the outside of your house they will repel insects .

now mix  in a Spray bottle  1/2 cup of the  Insect brine and fill up the rest with water and spray.
 for other uses you want to dilute this solution with water
 1:1 solution  this means 1 part insect brine 1 part water. 
you can mix some into skin lotions and shampoos to keep the pests away Spray around your house inside and out. mix it when you go to clean it will Repel and Kill  insects
