Bugging Out

Don’t bug out just because it’s buggy season… and definitely do not purchase over the counter bug spray that features a host of chemicals and potential health hazards. D.I.Y. bug spray is not only cost-effective, it’s a healthy and non-toxic option. In addition to that, it’s more sustainable and Mother Earth loves that!

In a dark glass spray bottle, mix the following ingredients:

  • 15 drops Organic Lavender Essential Oil
  • 15 drops Organic Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Organic Citronella Essential Oil
  • 4 tablespoons Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Organic Lemon Juice
  • 1 cup filtered water

Shake, shake some more and shake contents again! You’re now ready to spray. Happy Summer!

*Using dark glass prevents essential oils from oxidation.
