Cut the lemon and lime wedges and place them into a mason jar. Add the rosemary sprigs and seven to ten drops of lemon eucalyptus oil (it’s also used in commercially available insect repellants).

After filling the jar with water (leave some space at the top) drop in a floating tea candle and light it!

No mosquitos dare come near!

Pretty simple, right? Maybe you could pour some in a spray bottle for a little mobile mosquito prevention!
