Picnic Pillows-Insect Repellent.
Store bought Cushion Cover
1 cup of Dried lavender
10 drops of Peppermint oil
10 drops of Spearmint oil
Leaning on the cushion will crush the lavender flowers releasing an aromatic insect repellent.
Great for outdoor settings, picnic cushions or for hot summer nights inside when the doors are open.
Take your cushion insert and on either side in the center make a small cut.
Place half a cup of lavender into each side and either sew closed or glue closed.
Then place drops of each oil randomly over the insert making sure you cover both sides.
Place the insert into the cushion cover and its ready to use.
To refresh this pillow remove the insert and add more oils.
