Between fun days at the beach, evening barbecues with the family, and nighttime camping trips with friends, is there any wonder why we look forward to this season all year long?
But there’s something about summer that we definitely don’t look forward to — bugs. Mosquitoes and other insects thrive during the warm summer months. They’re not just annoying, though. They’re also capable of spreading infections and other dangerous diseases. If you really want to enjoy your summer, you’ve got to figure out a way to win the battle over bugs.
Luckily, the right blend of essential oils can be your best weapon!
Most people assume that you’ve got to slather yourself with stinky, chemical-laden sprays to truly fight off bugs. However, I’ve come up with a special bug repellent recipe that smells as great as it works. Best of all, when you make some of this special blend at home, you can rest easy knowing that everyone will be protected, without relying on toxic ingredients.
Here’s your DIY recipe:
- 1 oz plastic spray bottle (travel size empty bottle, can be found at any supermarket)
- distilled water
- 1 teaspoon vodka
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 5 drops Lemongrass
- 3 drops Cedarwood
- 5 drops Lavender
- 2 drops Peppermint
