How to Make All-Natural Fly Repellent

Nothing beats relaxing in your backyard under the cover of an awning — until the flies take over. Soon, no amount of swishing and swatting keeps them from landing on you, your book or your food. Apart from being a nuisance, flies can also carry bacteria and other pathogens. Instead of whipping out the chemicals, keep yourself safe and keep flies at bay with all-natural fly repellents that use essential oils.
