It is nice to have a repellent free of questionable chemicals, especially for expecting mamas or little ones.
How to make your own bug spray:
- 2 oz (about 2 shot-glasses worth) witch hazel or vodka
- about 30 drops of essential oil ( any combination of tea tree, eucalyptus, peppermint, clove, cinnamon, or citronella)
- about a tablespoon of castile soap ( I used eucalyptus bronners)
There are probably lots of other bug repelling ingredients that I haven't come across, I would love to hear any other ideas for keeping bugs away naturally. Happy summer nights!
