Yard Spray for Flies

Leave a comment


In the areas of our yard we play and eat, the flies are so irritating! So I mixed up this stuff and it seems to be working.

20 drops each of the oils (cedar, citronella, lemongrass)
4 oz of castile soap (lavender)
Fill 24 oz spray bottle with water

Smells nice, totally safe & won’t hurt the kids & dogs.

Aloha Friday friends!

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.
