Both the mint and geranium sprays can be used on your skin to help protect you from insect bites.

The mint spray can double up as a lovely scented cleaning solution for your kitchen, bathroom, and counters.

Total Time: Half a day to soak the leaves

Yield: 2 spray bottles

Supplies:

  • 2 empty fillable spray bottles
  • 1 bunch of fresh mint leaves (with or without stems)

Steps:

  1. Soak the mint and geranium leaves with water in two separate containers for at least half a day.

  3. Remove the leaves from the water and pour each concoction into each spray bottle. Label so you know which is which. Alternatively, you can do what I did here and put the leaves inside each bottle and just identify by looking at the leaves.
