Herbal Insect Repellent Vinegar Recipe

We pour our vinegars into spray bottles for easy application.

• 2 cups fresh insect-repellent herbs (See "Medicinal Herbal Remedies for Summer Skin Problems", link below, for the Insect-Repellent Herbs list)
• 2 cups apple cider vinegar

1. Crush herbs with a mortar and pestle. Place herbs in a glass quart jar and cover with vinegar. Use a plastic lid to seal the jar (vinegar corrodes metal). Shake every day for 3 to 7 days. Filter vinegar within a week and use within the year.
