How to make this DIY Bug Repellent

1 Slice up several oranges and lemons after peeling them. To unleash their aroma and natural oils, lightly scrunch the freshly torn herbs.
2 After adding the herbs, cinnamon sticks, and peel slices to the jar, carefully pour warm water over everything to completely cover it.
3 Add a few drops of each essential oil, secure the jar’s top, and give it a light shake to combine the components.
4 Remove the cover, which should release a mouthwatering aroma of fresh, lemony herbs that bugs abhor, and place a tea light candle on top.
