I love summer but hate the annoying critters that come with it. We have just added our "Bugs Away" blend to the store- I used this over the weekend with great results! The recipe I used is:
- 4oz Spray Bottle
- Witch Hazel
- Bugs Away Blend
- Distilled Water
Take a 4 oz essential oil safe spray bottle- fill halfway with witch hazel. Add 36 drops (1% dilution for kids) or 72 drops (2% dilution for adults) of BUGS AWAY blend. Swirl to mix, top with distilled water. Shake before each use for a much, much better smelling and safer bug spray.
The dilution recommendations are for topical, skin contact sprays. If you are using just on clothing, tents, etc- you can use a stronger dilution.
I also spray this on the screen door before letting my dogs in and out of the house. The Bugs Away blend is also great diffused by a camper door!
