Michelle Rhodes from Mossy Creek Soap in Warner Robins makes a living out of making soaps, lotions and creams. 

Thursday on Eyewitness News Midday, she stopped by to show Kenny Burgamy how to make his own lotion stick that should help repel mosquitoes, gnats and other pesky insects.

The Lotion Bar Recipe consists of:
One part beeswax
One part butter - cocoa, shea or other nut butter
One part oil - any oil soft at room temperature
Bug Repelling Blend of Essential Oils (Lemongrass, Citronella, Eucalyptus and Lavender)

Rhodes says it's very easy to make by melting them down, adding the essential oils and pouring them into a mold or tube. Let cool and then use!
