The flies are still going strong here in the UK and they seem as vicious and tenacious as ever!

There’s a massive range of fly repellents on the market but at over £8 a bottle it’s a bit pricey, especially when it’s easy to make your own.

Here’s my recipe:

  • white vinegar and water for the base
  • Avon skin so soft
  • citronella oil
  • lavender oil
  • eucalyptus oil

I also had garlic to Abbey’s feed during the summer months.
