Lets talk all natural bug spray
Summer is fast approaching. What does that mean. Mosquitoes
And unfortunately now this threat of mosquitoes brings another threat of a new virus that they carry.
I am a momma who does not like the commercial mosquito sprays. To many harsh chemicals. So I use my oils to make my own spray
I made this spray last summer and it worked great!!!
I used a 16 oz Amber glass spray bottle
40 drops of TerraShield
15 drops Lemongrass
15 drops Cedarwood
10 drops Peppermint
I found that using Fractionated Coconut Oil and Witch Hazel helped the spray last longer.
I did a half and half combo of these 2 and shake the bottle well before each use. You can also use water and witch hazel or whatever carrier oil you prefer. All of these oils have a bug repellent property to them. I have read that you can actually diffuse the Terrashield as well to ward off the bugs. I have not tried this since I have 3 kids. They do not hold still long enough to be around a diffuser outside ;)
You can purchase these oils here
