DIY Bug Spray

There's no need to use harsh chemicals on your kids to keep the bugs away this Summer.  Make your own all natural bug repellant with household ingredients and essential oils!

You'll Need:
  • Spray bottle (4 - 8 oz will work)
  • witch hazel
  • distilled water
  • Any combo of essential oils (rosemary, eucalyptus, tea tree, citronella, peppermint, cypress, rose geranium, bergamont, lemon)
Fill the bottle half way with distilled water and fill the rest with witch hazel.  Add in 30 - 60 drops of essential oils or until you have a scent you like.  Shake before applying.

  1. Do you know if the essential oils are needed to repel the insects? I just wonder why you would use them. Thanks for sharing this.
