Prevent biting flies, horseflies, and mosquitoes from lunching on your skin with natural repellents. For example, lemongrass contains citronella, so mash up the inner leaves and rub the juice on your skin. Or, try making your own skin-safe bug spray: Fill a spray bottle with ½ teaspoon of pennyroyal essential oil, 1 cup isopropyl alcohol, and 1 cup water. Mix well and spray on skin, making sure to shield your eyes.
