Following on from their experiments to find out which smell insects like least, the O’Dwyer Room made their own insect repellent, ‘O’Dwyer Room Bite Me Not’. Vanessa came into class to show them how she makes insect repellent using natural oils and wax. The O’Dwyers got to smell the essential oils like clove, lavender and cedar wood and then feel the differences between hard bees wax and the soft mango butter. The ingredients were put together, melted in a microwave and then poured into pots. Watch out for the O’Dwyers, there are no flies on them!
