How to make this DIY Bug Repellent

|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.|
