Bug Repellent…another thing with way too many scary chemicals in it! And I don’t know about you, but I think the reason the bugs stay away isn’t because of what’s in the repellent, it’s because of how smelly it is! Here are some essential oil buy spray recipes to try that won’t leave your nose burning!
- 2 oz. water
- 60 drops lemon essential oil
I found the little spray bottle pictured above at Target for less than $1 in the travel section. You could also re-use an empty spray bottle from something you have at home!
Since these recipes contain citrus oils this spray is best used on your clothing or around the area you are in instead of on your skin.
Do you make homemade bug spray? What’s your recipe?
