Pour 10 oz. of pure citronella oil and 3 oz. of distilled water into a spray bottle. Use pure natural citronella oil, not fragrance oil. Citronella fragrance oils are chemically made and do not repel mosquitoes.
Place the spray nozzle cap back onto the spray bottle. Make sure it is closed tightly.
Shake the spray bottle vigorously before each use, as water and oil separate.
Spray the citronella oil mixture on your skin before going outdoors. You can also spray liberally in areas around the home.
