Homemade bug repellent!

When I was a kid, we'd occasionally head to southern Oklahoma to visit my aunt.  Ungodly heat and humidity seemed to be the norm with every visit.  They also seemed to have mosquitoes by the zillions.  My aunt would pour puddles of apple cider vinegar in her hand and just rub it all over me.  Whatever bites I already had seemed to stop itching sooner plus I don't remember getting more bites.  Could be that I was afraid of getting another rub down of vinegar.  Who knows?

I did find a great post over at Crunchy Betty's, including a recipe plus other suggestions for bug repelling.  Take a look - http://www.crunchybetty.com/crunchy-kids-shoo-spray-homemade-insect-repellent


And she has the homemade bug repellent in such a cute little spray bottle!

What about treating bug bites the natural way?  Try some of these:
