Smudge your campfire with sage to keep bugs away #The Great Offbeat Outdoors#camping#great-ideas#outdoor living Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jun 27 2012) Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Sage-scented smoke from tossing some sticks of sage into a campfire or fire pit will turn off mosquitos and other insects from invading your camp space. It smells nice to us, but they have discerning tastes, apparently. Like dung. Weirdos. Use your own self-grown sage or some smudge sticks and bask in your campfire glow with fewer bug bites. ᔥ Intuition Physician Catherine Clark Catherine Clark loiters at her local library, makes art, watches movies en masse, plays video and tabletop games, poorly cooks healthy things, cuddles with her feline fur babies, and blogs at BijouxandBits.com. @enidjcoleslaw @bijouxandbits @bijouxandbits PREVIOUS You could recycle those leftover diaper boxes… or you could make your own AT-AT out of them NEXT How to make a large L-shaped couch take up less space in a room Show/Hide comments [ 4 ] Super useful to know, thanks! Fabulous idea. We use sage for lots of things; here's another! I've also heard that sage smoke is useful for keeping evil spirits away… I hope this works for moths too! 😐 Comments are closed.
