Ditch the chemical bug spray formulas! It is so easy to make your own homemade bug repellent that is natural and safe for your family. Even better, this recipe actually works to repel bugs! This DIY Bug spray also smells great, which means your kids will actually want to put this on when playing outside.
All you will need is a plastic spray bottle, distilled water, Epsom salts, and a couple of my favorite essential oils – Purification and Peppermint Essential Oils. These are two of the oils included in a Young Living Starter Kit.
Once you make this easy DIY bug repellent spray, you will probably want to make a few for different areas around the house. I like to keep one in my car for when we are out and about and need repellent.
- 8 oz distilled water
- pinch of Epsom salts
- 8 drops Purification Essential Oil
- 8 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- Plastic Spray Bottle
- Add Epsom salt to your spray bottle.
- Add Essential oils to your spray bottle.
- Add water.
- Shake well.
- Make sure to shake well each time before every use.
- Spray skin and clothing liberally.
- Avoid face.
