How to make biodegradable insect repellent that doubles as a sore throat remedy.
Hey everybody today I’m going to show you how making an herbal vinegar that can be used externally as a mosquito and tick repellant. You can also use this internally as a sore through remedy that will also aid with digestion and fatigue.
This is the herbal vinegar containing rosemary, sage, lavender and mint.
- Mint is great for indigestion.
- Rosemary really helps to increase blood flow to the head and stimulate hair growth.
- Sage is a great general strength and wellness plant that is amazing at combating sore throats.
- Lavender a great soothing plant the helps us relax but also works as a great insect repellant
What to do?
Take all the herbs we discussed above and add them to a glass jar, next simply fill the jar with vinegar, if you’re planning on using this internally I would highly recommend using apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar has a whole host of amazing health giving properties including essential vitamins and minerals and has been used in medicine since around 2000BC.
Once you have added the vinegar we need to leave this to marinate for three to four weeks this will give the herbs time to infuse properly. So if you would like to use it externally I would recommend making a 50×50 mix of water to vinegar and adding to a fine spray bottle.
Important note: If you’re allergic to aspirin it’s wise to avoid the sage, you can supplement it with lemon grass instead.
