Essential Oil Bug Sprays

This All-Natural Concoction Keeps the Mosquitos at Bay in a Healthy Way

— July 9, 2015 — Lifestyle
People are becoming more aware -- and as a result increasingly concerned -- about what they are putting in and on their bodies; this Essential Oil Bug Spray recipe is great for those who are especially conscious about such things. Store-bought repellants are considered mildly dangerous by some, leading them to explore other avenues when avoiding the bites of these pesky insects.

Fairly simple to create, the Essential Oil Bug Spray is made with a number of base options including Citronella, Clove, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Cedar, Catnip, Lavender and Mint as well as witch hazel or vodka, distilled or boiled water and vegetable glycerin. People can fill a small spray bottle with the ingredients and voila! an all-natural bug repellant is born.
