Summer solstice tea tree bug repellent

Summer solstice bug repellent

It’s Summer solstice in Australia! Time for beautifully warm nights under pink skies with a symphony of insects.

To avoid getting bitten: Old roll on deodorant container + a few drops of tea tree oil + water = a gentle antiseptic and mosquito repellent. Perfect for my husband when he changes his insulin cannula too. When we’re camping, we just take the essential oil without the convenience of a dispenser.

Note that this is not a hospital-grade sterile approach and should not be used if there is risk of infection. Keep upright to avoid leaking. Clean packaging thoroughly before refilling.
