Food, oils and mosquitoes

Wild roses, cheese pie and salad.

It's a day off tomorrow because of the midsummer weekend!
But the weather is bad, rainy, windy and cold. Not exactly what you want for midsummer:/

+ We have an invasion of mosquitoes again.
EVEN more than last summer, because of the long cold winter with a lot of snow. Therefore, a mosquito spray is a must have if you're going to be outside in the evening.
Today at work I got a recipe for an organic mosquito o i l.
I bought the ingredients and just did my own oil, which consists of:

1 1 / 2 cup olive oil (mine was not organic)
20 drops of lavender oil
20 drops eucalyptus oil
20 drops pine oil
20 drops lemongrass oil
20 drops rosemary oil

It should really work against mosquitoes! I hope so!
