"This summer has been a big mosquito season. I was being eaten alive. I am so happy that I remembered this remedy from my travels to Costa Rica and other tropical places. I put a few drops of the citronella oil with my body lotion and I have found it to work beautifully. This way I know the ingredients of the bug repellent that I am putting on my skin. It's a good and easy solution." - Redhead1
