Make your own natural insect repellent for a bug-free summer
If you get creeped out about spraying poison that can floor a mosquito all over your skin, all over your kids just before getting it in your mouth by accident, here’s a great solution: Natural Homemade Bug Spray. You can make this handy homemade bug spray in no time at all and it keeps indefinitely.
What you need:
- 12 drops lemon eucalyptus oil
- 12 drops citronella oil
- 12 drops orange oil
- 1/2 cup witch hazel
Place ingredients in a spray bottle and apply liberally. Kids under two may have reactions if they have sensitive skins, so spray on their strollers instead.
