Making your own bug spray can be easy.  All you need is a few items and blend!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 3-8 oz dark spray bottle.  I like to order from SKS or Specialty bottle, but you can also get just one bottle at your local health food store.
  • High-quality Essential oils- I order from mountainroseherbs.com but there are many other companies.
    • Cypress
    • Geranium
    • Bergamot
    • Rosemary
    • Cedarwood
    • Peppermint
  • 40-50% vodka.  It doesn’t have to be high quality.  You can also use witch hazel as an alternative

Directions for DIY Bug Spray

  • Mix 1 cup of 50% Vodka
  • Essential oils:
    Cypress E.O. (10 Drops)
    Geranium E.O. (10 Drops)
    Bergamot E.o. (10 Drops)
    Rosemary E.O, (10 Drops)
    Cedarwood E.O. (10 Drops)
    Peppermint Essential Oil (3 Drops)

Mix well and place in a dark bottle. Shake before use.
