Essential oils are natural, chemical-free alternatives to store-bought bug sprays. Many essential oils are mosquito repellents. Lemongrass and Citronella are the most commonly used in natural bug sprays, but most lemon-scented essential oils are insecticides. Other good options include Eucalyptus and Lavender.

Eucalyptus essential oil deters mosquitoes and other insects, and it works even against fleas on dogs and cats (but never use undiluted essential oils on your pets! Try a more pet-specific option for homemade natural flea repellents ). Lavender is another natural mosquito repellent, and it works for other insects too. Fresh lavender flowers are known to keep moths away from bed linens and other household textiles. If you have been bitten by a mosquito, add a drop of lavender oil directly on the spot, and it will help to relieve the itching. Lavender is also used in natural products and treatments against head lice.

A typical natural bug repellent contains water, witch hazel, and essential oils. Witch hazel is sometimes used to treat insect bites, wounds, and skin irritations. If you don’t have any witch hazel, just add a little alcohol to the water. Essential oils do not disperse in water and will just float at the top of the blend, so the alcohol is used as a dispersant. Always shake your insect repellent bottle really well before use.

I love me a good home design magazine… and I wish this post were an announcement that I am being featured in one (like my friend Roeshel just announced !  Way to go Roeshel!).  Alas, it is just me talking about reading magazines, but still, I can retain the being featured dream.

Cassity started Remodelaholic with her husband, Justin, to share their love for knocking out walls together. She is an interior designer, wife, and mother of two. She and Justin have remodeled three homes from top to bottom and are working on their fourth. Making a house a home is her favorite hobby.

I remember my mother spraying a bit of citronella oil here and there during the summer time to ward off creepy crawlies. We live in Arizona and sometimes insects can “drop by” without warning. Thanks for taking me nostalgia lane just now. 🙂

I spend a lot of time in my kitchen, so having a good set of knives is pretty imperative for me.  For Christmas, my wonderful hubby bought me a new set of shiny knives! Yes, I am one of those women who  does  enjoy getting kitchen appliances and gadgets for holidays.  If it makes my life easier, I am all for it!  The last set of knives we had were from our wedding registry, and they were pretty worn down, and needless to say, I was ready for a nice new set.

Within a few months though, my knives started getting small rust spots on the blade.  I think this may be due to the dishwasher, and perhaps this can be avoided by hand washing… but I’m not a huge fan of washing dishes by hand, so instead of finding a prevention, I would rather find a solution 🙂

With the help of my good friend, Google, I have come up with a list of natural knife cleaning methods, and I have tried them all out.  Here are the results, so you can decide for yourself what you think is best!

If you aren’t familiar with naturally fermented beverages, you might be asking what the heck a Ginger Bug is and why you should make one…

A ginger bug is a culture of beneficial bacteria made from fresh ginger root and sugar. It is similar to a sourdough starter for bread or a kombucha scoby for making kombucha . The ginger imparts its flavor and as it naturally ferments, creates a mixture of beneficial bacteria.

Though not overly tasty by itself, the Ginger Bug is the base for many homemade sodas and tonics. We use it to make Root Beer, Ginger Ale, Fruit “sodas” and more.
