It’s hot, humid and the last thing you want is to be itchy from all the bug bites summertime just loves to offer!! To be honest, if I had to rate a top 10 of worst things in the world, bug bites would be on it…. let’s face it, BUGS in general would be on it.
B U T What’s even worse is using the smelly, not to mention sticky bug spray you can find in your local Walmart.
SO – you know there’s an essential oil blend for pretty much everything you could think of ~ so you know I’ve found something for the outdoors now that it’s pushing 90+ degrees in Virginia.. *yikes* I’m going to share with you all a DIY bug spray using just 5 essential oils (10 drops of each in a 4oz body)!!
|Taken from (housefiveessentials)|
• 10 drops of Citronella, 10 drops of Lemongrass, 10 drops Peppermint, 10 drops purification, 10 drops of Lavender (optional) •
Once you’ve added your oils, you’re going to fill 1/3 of the 4oz bottle with ‘witch hazel’ and the remaining 2/3 with water.
If you have a diffuser that you’re able to bring outdoors, you can ALSO diffuse this blend while hanging outback!
I hope you all give this awesome DIY trick in your own aromatherapy routine a try ~ I think this could help everyone out this summer !!
