Do you love hanging outdoors but can't stand the mosquitos? Using bug spray can make all the difference between no bug bites vs. several itchy bumps you CANT stop scratching. See below for the simple recipe everyone can try at home!

Homemade Bug Spray with everyday ingredients:

  1. Spray Bottle (repurpose something from your recycling bin)
  2. 30 drops of essential oil(s) of your choice
  3. ½ cup of witch hazel or apple cider vinegar
  4. ½ cup of water

Essential oils that repel insects:

  • Lemongrass
  • Citronella
  • Rosemary
  • Tea tree
  • Peppermint
  • Lemon
  • Lavender

Please make sure you shake the bottle before each use and apply the homemade bug spray more often than regular store-bought spray, but give it a try and keep us posted if it works for you!
