Lavender Oil And Lavender Flowers On White Background

Folks from the city are often fascinated by the local deer that seem strangely at home grazing on the lawn in any given yard. Although they are lovely to look at, deer can reek havoc on our gardens and flower beds. Nancy Thompson of Loyalton, depends on the following home-made spray to keep the Bambis out. This recipe was from a lavendar farm in Sequim, Washington as deer eat the roses on the farm.

Mix a batch and try it out!

1 c. milk
3 eggs
1 T. vegetable oil
1 T. dishwashing soap
20-30 drops essential oil (lavendar and cloves)

1.  Blend thoroughly in a blender.
2. Add to one gallon of water in a sprayer.
3. Spray lightly every 3-4 weeks.
Use right away, as the mixture loses its potency if made ahead.
