Organic Bug Spray with Essential Oils

Just in time for summer, all natural bug repellent spray! As I started packing for our next family camping trip to a local lake, I decided to whip up an all natural bug repellent spray to keep the bugs, gnats, and mosquito’s away. Prior to using essential oils, I would have grabbed one of the name brand sprays from my local drug store. Now that I am a little older, wiser, and “hippier”, I know better!

{For more information regarding the harmful chemicals contained in popular bug repellents – click here – you may be surprised that one specific chemical has been categorized as a “neurotoxin” and keep in mind – we spray it on our skin – our largest organ – get’s absorbed straight into our blood and carried throughout the body}

My favorite repellent blend –

  • 2 oz spray bottle (I used a larger bottle duplicated the recipe)
  • 15 drops of insect repellant blend
  • 15 drops of cleansing blend
  • 15 drops of cedarwood essential oil
  • 15 drops of lemongrass essential oil
  • Water

Add all the ingredients to the bottle, shake and apply!

A note on essential oil quality: I only use the highest quality, therapeutic grade essential oils.  All of these suggestions are based off the assumption that high-quality essential oils are being used.
