Natural Defence Against Mosquito Season!

Hi Friends,

It's Mosquito Season and they are all ready running rapid in my area of the country, Colorado!! And in the news, there are new viruses spread by these unhealthy insects!

Good Mosquito Deterrents

Planting these plants around the house really does keep the Mosquitoes at bay!! Last year, I planted Basil in a boarder around my herb garden. Marigolds, Thyme, Rosemary,  Citronella, Lavender, Lemon Grass & Lemon Balm, Geraniums all have wonderful bug repellent properties! Plant some today!

A Natural Mosquito Spray

I find it very easy to make my own mosquito spray –  just a few seconds to mix it and much better than the regular mosquito repellents that are full with harmful chemicals and dyes.
12 oz. bottle witch hazel
30-50 drops of one or more of the following essential oils: citronella, lemongrass, peppermint, eucalyptus, basil, rosemary, tea tree, geranium, lavender and thyme. The more oils you use, the stronger the spray will be. (I use a mix of basil, rosemary, tea tree & lavender)
A funnel.
An empty spray container
An empty mixing jar for mixing the contents
       I have also read other articles that suggest planting these plants around your home is a good                 deterrent.
Pour the witch hazel in the mixing jar and add the essential oils. Shake well and place in your spray bottle using a funnel. Shake it before use. Make sure you don’t get any in your eyes, and when using for your kids just place a little bit over a small area to make sure they are not allergic to any of the essential oils. From experience, washing windows with vinegar, I caution you to not get this in your eyes, it really burns, so does the vinegar!
I keep the left over mix in the refrigerator so that when I spray it on, it is nice and cool.

Repelling Mosquitoes Naturally

 Make sure you wear light colored clothing, as dark clothing and colors actually attract these blood suckers! Also, during the Spring/Summer Seasons when outdoors, choose Non-Fruity, Non-Flowery smelling personal products, such as deodorant, hair products, perfume, that attract these unwanted nasty things! Ok, so you can see how much I loathe these vermin! LOL

Here is a video I found that also covers this topic!

Prayers for Healing Update

Prayers for Healing (Prayers for Healing UPDATES) Hello Dear Ones,

When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:16b NCV)
I've been giving thought to how to go about our prayer chain. I have decided to do an ongoing prayer post with updates and with Praises as they come in!

If you would like to be on this list, or if you would like me to post a prayer for you, please just let me know in the comments below in the Subject line put "Prayer Request", add the first name and last initial, prayer request and I will add it asap. I remove the info from the comments, so you will not see it below, but on this list here when I am done.

It has been said to me many times that, " if we don't know what to pray for, be it huge or small, we don't recieve the blessing that prayer will give the person who needs the prayer and the person praying". Please keep posing the prayer requests. All personal information is kept private.

We pray to you Lord Jesus Christ to…
