Homemade Insect Repellant

Two types of vanilla extractImage via Wikipedia
Make sure it is PURE. The artificial stuff is worthless.
2 cups of water
1 tbsp of Dr Bronner's or Biokleen concentrated cleaner
1 cinnamon stick
1 oz of pure vanilla extract
20 drops of tea tree oil
10 drops of peppermint oil

Put all ingredients into a spray bottle and shake the heck of out of it. You can add a bit of vodka or everclear, but I think that might be a bit overkill. Spray wherever you see any trouble. Insects can't stand the stuff and flee!
