Homemade Bug Spray Recipe


The ONLY bad thing about spending so much time outdoors, hiking, swimming and enjoying some beers at dusk is the damn bugs. Mosquitos, flies, spiders-name it, and I got bit by it this past vacation week. Hug, swollen bumps and scratching myself all day long is not a good look. I REFUSE to douse myself in the toxic chemicals that reside in run-of-the-mill insect repellents though, so similar to most situations, I had to take it upon myself to make a safer alternative. This spray is a cinch to make and smells surprisingly great

1/2 cup distilled water

1/2 cup witch hazel

1 tsp vegetable glycerin

25 drops rosemary essential oil

25 drops lavender essential oil

  • Mix all ingredients together-store in a mason jar or spray bottle
