Bug Repellent

Updated: Jul 22, 2023

I’m sharing my tested by me D.I.Y bug spray!

Seems everyone is on board with essential oils and this is great! This year I have finally found the perfect combo for mosquitos and ticks. I have made numerous blends previously that worked but not as good as this blend! This did not work amazing on deer flies however which I don’t know why. This will just give you an idea of how to blend because not everyone will have the same type of spray bottle.

Here it is: 

You will need:

Spray bottle

Purified water 

Lemon essential oil

Peppermint essential oil 

Eucalyptus essential oil 

Carrier oil - coconut oil

Fill your bottle 3/4 of the way with the water, and fill 1/4 with coconut oil (helps it stick to the skin) Then you will add equal drops of each oil. You want to be able to smell the oils well. That is how you will judge how much you need of the oils. Use your senses. In a small purse-size bottle I use about 7 drops. 

However, you do it you now know the correct blend to repel those pesky bugs! Remember to shake your bottle use the oils separately and reapply approximately every half hour depending on how bad the area is!

Hope this helps and if you need a hand, drop your questions in the comments!
