Glass Jars with a lid Do not use plastic it will not work please use GLASS ONLY
Vinegar White Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar the choice is yours but the Apple Cider Vinegar is Stronger and works better in my opinion
now if you're allergic to Vinegar you can also use Witch Hazel its up to you you can do half witch hazel and half vinegar if you prefer Witch hazel also repels insects.
Put all the Herbs and spices in a Glass Jar (mason jar works Great )
Now Muddle the Herbs if you do not know what Muddle means it means to Crush
Just Crush the leaves and herbs and spices all up
once you have done that and gotten the oils out
now add in the Vinegar until it it 1 inch from the top of the container.
and put it in a dark place LABELED so you don't lose it or throw it away by accident.
Then you leave it alone for 3 weeks to STEEP and have patience .
Okay after 3 Weeks later
and strain the liquid into another mason jar or glass container lets call this the Insect Brine
you can take the solids and put them around the outside of your house they will repel insects .
now mix in a Spray bottle 1/2 cup of the Insect brine and fill up the rest with water and spray.
for other uses you want to dilute this solution with water
1:1 solution this means 1 part insect brine 1 part water.
you can mix some into skin lotions and shampoos to keep the pests away Spray around your house inside and out. mix it when you go to clean it will Repel and Kill insects
