All Natural Bug Spray

ad_spacer ad_spacer

We’ve been spending a lot of time outside so far this summer. While I’m loving all the extra Vitamin D that we’re getting, I’m not diggin’ the bug and mosquito bites at all! I’ve been keeping a bottle of purification essential oil on hand to help with bug bites (which works wonderfully). While we were preparing to head out to river I throw together an all natural bug spray to protect my babies and I from the mosquitoes waiting to feast on us. This spray works well, especially when it comes to keeping away mosquitoes!

Homemade All Natural Bug Spray

What you’ll need:


Pour all the ingredients into the spray bottle. Twist on the cap and shake well. Always shake to mix oils together before using.

    I would love to hear about your beauty routine. Maybe you can post something??

    I am just wondering why the picture shows Theives and Purification, when the recipe calls for Witch Hazel and Citronella? Is there a connection? Thanks.

      Hi Rebecca! The original recipe called for the oil blends in the picture but due to FDA regulations I had to change the recipe to only use Citronella Essential Oil since that is the only oil the FDA approved of as a natural bug repellent. :/

        Oh! Go figure! They wouldn’t want us using too many natural remedies, now would they? “Theoretically” speaking, could one mix a few ounces of coconut oil with say 5 drops each of Thieves and Purification and mist it on a blanket on which we sit at our picnic. 😉 😉
