DIY Natural Bug Repellant

August 31, 2016

Barbecues, beach days, picnics and bonfires are all staples during the summer months, but can often be ruined by uninvited guests. Specifically, we are talking about mosquitoes. If you live in a climate that attracts mosquitoes, you understand just how big of a problem they can be. 

DIY Bug Spray

This DIY bug spray recipe could not be more simple or customizable. To get started you will need a spray bottle filled with equal parts witch hazel and water (ex. 4oz to 4oz). To the bottle you will then add 30-50 drops of essential oils, screw the spray top on tightly, and give it a good shake! You now have an all natural bug spray that you can feel good about using on both yourself and your kids.
