Don’t believe the hype! You don’t need chemical-laden commercially produced bug sprays to keep the nasty annoying critters away. You just need natural essential oils!
I LOVE being outside. It’s been scientifically proven that nature has remarkable health benefits. But being outside and getting eaten alive by pesky bugs is irritating. I want to enjoy being outside, not spend my time swatting bugs.
This recipe is potent – in a GOOD way! You’re welcome. 🙂
It even smells pretty good, too!
8 oz glass spray bottle
60 drops citronella
30 drops each of: lavender, cedarwood, lemon, peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus, and lemongrass
2 oz. witch hazel
- In the spray bottle add all drops of oils, then the witch hazel and fill the rest of the bottle with water.
- Give a gentle shake before each application.
- You can half this recipe and use a 4 oz bottle and half the amount of drops of oils.
