Make Your Own Natural Bug Repellent!
There has been lots of chatter lately about all the bugs, ticks and mosquitoes that come out in swarms this time of year!
Here is your reminder before the upcoming hot, sunny, buggy weekends ahead to get your bug spray ready for when you need it!
Natural Bug Repellent Recipe
•20 drops Terrashield Essential Oil
•12 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
•10 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil
•8 drops Geranium Essential Oil
•4 drops Arborvitae Essential Oil
•4 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Use approximately 6 oz glass bottle. Put your essential oils in first, then fill remainder of bottle with fractionated coconut oil or half water and half witch hazel. Using glass is important as Essential Oils can break down your plastic (yuck).
Spray on you and your family before you head outdoors, and then pack it with you so you can reapply as needed.
It doesn't just keep the bugs away it also smells nice! If you have a home diffuser, you can put these oils in a diffuser blend and enjoy a bug free patio!
