Homemade Natural Bug Spray
It seems like every time we go outside in the evening, we come back in with mosquito bites. Mosquitos are nasty and dangerous, so I went to our little market to pick up some all natural bug spray.
Until I saw it was $9 for a little rinky dink bottle.
So I made note of the ingredients and went home and made my own.
16 oz bottle of witch hazel-92 cents
8 oz spray bottle-$1
Lemon oil-had it
Lavender oil-had it
I filed up the spray bottle with 8 ounces of witch hazel, added 10-15 drops of each oil, shook it up and let the kids go to town.
We’ve used this every night after dinner when we go for our walk and so far we have not been a target of a mosquito smorgasbord.
Spraying yourself until it drips off your arm? Totally optional.
