All Natural Bug Spray

All Natural Bug Spray
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!

    I very much enjoy all your posts and info you give. I’m pretty new at this, but I really have always had an interest in traditional healing products. I’m a fan! Thanks.

    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. 😉 😉
