Are you looking for a natural way to keep the pesky bugs away this summer?
My friend Amber made this bug spray up over Memorial day weekend and was so pleased with it!
I never thought I would make my own bug spray before!
Before oils my thought process was...
I hate bugs and bug bites... I also hate the smell of bug spray but hate the bugs more.
I would use the chemical laden bug spray
knowingly that I didn't really want to spray the chemicals on us but felt we had no other choice.
We found an "all natural" bug spray at the store. It stinks AND didn't work.
I now feel good knowing exactly what is in my bug spray
to keep the bugs from "bugging" us (you see what I did there?)!
- 10 drops of Purification
- 10 drops of Thieves
- 10 drops of Peppermint
- 1 cup of water
- 3 TBSP of witch hazel
voila you've got yourself an all natural bug spray that WORKS!
**If you are using this spray on children under the age of 2 I would omit the Peppermint. Also, avoid spraying it in the eyes**
