Home made mosquito, ant and flea repellent

Alleged proof
This item came to us via Facebook, so many of our readers will have seen it. However, please be aware that as much as we dislike mosquitos, ants and fleas, we cannot be held responsible for the effectiveness of this formula, of which we have not changed an iota (we assume that the 1/2 litre of alcohol it mentions is of the rubbing kind and not the more expensive vodka or gin). If you try it (not the vodka, silly!), please let us know how effective it is.>>>

(And free from chemicals that poison the body)

1/2 litre of alcohol
100 gram of whole cloves
100 ml of baby oil or similar (almond, sesame, chamomile, lavender, fennel etc)

Leave cloves to marinate in alcohol four days
Stir every morning and evening
After 4 days add the oil
It's now ready to use.

How to use:
Gently rub a few drops into the skin of the arms and legs.
Observe the mosquitoes fleeing the room.
Repels fleas on pets too.
