Summer is here and so are the BUGS!!!!!

I love the warm summer days filled with hikes in the park, camping, Bonfires, swimming at the lake and BBQ’s with friends what I don’t like are all the bugs! Just like anyone I thought the most strong smelling nasty bug spray like OFF family was ok to use seeing as it says “family” on it we should be safe from most of the harsh chemicals in a bug spray right? Wrong, I looked at the back of the bottle since doing the switch to healthy Essential Oil based products and was floored to see all the chemicals in the mix not to mention it says right on the bottle “HAZARDS TO HUMANS-CAUTION” “FLAMABLE” DO NOT SPRAY IN ENCLOSED AREA! Um ok last I checked I was a human so why use a product that specifically says caution to humans??

I make a bug spray that I love and it not only repels the bugs especially the pesky Mosquitoes but it smells great and is healthy for my family! The thing I love the most about it is that I can spray it and not have to wear a hazmat suit or worry that it is being inhaled into my lungs and causing damage. My family and I have used this formula on many occasions and have seen great results without all the chemicals that are a danger to us.

Here is a great recipe that I have found works well after trying three different variations. I hope you enjoy it and use it for the summer. I also sell this in the Online Store if you are wanting the products but just don’t want to invest in all the oils but would like the benefits check out the store for all your products to make the switch you’ll be glad you did!

 

Bug Spray

4 oz glass or PET plastic spray bottle

1 Tbsp Witch Hazel

1 tsp Jojoba Oil

15 drops Citronella Essential Oil

10 Drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil

10 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil

Top bottle with Distilled water

Add essential oils to the bottle first, next use a small funnel and add the witch hazel and jojoba oil and top with distilled water. Place cap on the bottle and shake before each use. Apply every 2-3 hours for maximum protection store in a cool dry place when not in use.

 

Thanks again and Bless you all,
