Now that we’re (finally!) heading into warmer weather, I’m so excited to spend more time outside. Unfortunately, with the warmer weather we also get bugs. When I’m gardening, hiking or camping I have no desire to worry about those pesky biting insects…but I also don’t want to be applying any chemicals onto my skin.
Thankfully, I’ve discovered essential oils that smell good, are all natural AND are effective at repelling insects! Before you head outdoors again, make up a batch and let me know what you think!
10 drops Lemon Eucalyptus
5 drops Lavender
5 drops Lemongrass
5 drops Peppermint
Combine in a 2 ounce glass spray bottle. Top off with fractionated coconut oil. Shake before use.
