- 4 Mason jars (you can also recycle jelly jars, etc)
- 40 drops each – cedarwood, lavender, lemon and Thieves essential oils (or use your own combination of oils, but these are known to help to repel the buggies). This equals TEN drops of each oil/jar.
- 2 fresh lemons
- 2 fresh limes
- 8 sprigs fresh rosemary
- Floating tea light candles
Line up 4 mason jars.
Slice the lemons and the limes and set aside for a moment – I like to have two each just in case but you can possibly use one each.
Place two sprigs of rosemary into each jar.
Fill each jar ¾ full with water.
Add the essential oils of your choice – 10 drops each per jar – and swirl slightly.
Place a slice each of lemon and lime into each jar.
Add more water if needed to raise the level to almost full.
Place a floating tea light candle on top.
Set outside, light and make some magic once you light them.
Replace tea lights as needed – I recommend having some extras on hand!
Discard fruit and liquid in jar after 2 – 3 days depending on your climate; rinse jars and start fresh as needed.
