The nasty bugs will soon be out in full force. There is nothing worse than those creepy little ticks that crawl onto you and then dig in deep for dinner. What about those buzzing little mosquitos that sink those pointy little needle looking beaks into your skin for a tasty dining experience! I really hate them and all of the other nasty little bugs that land on me and bite.
A great alternative to chemical bug sprays.
I have found a great alternative to the bug sprays that are full of all those chemicals. I don’t know what is worse, the bugs or the spray.
Here is an idea you can try, a do it yourself bug spray, “Away.” It is inexpensive to make and has worked very well for me. Here is what you will need:
Easy to make bug spray
I like to use a small glass spray bottle. Add the amount of water you would use in 3 days. (It is not as potent if it sits for many days in the water.) If you don’t want to use a spray bottle and water you can always mix “Away” with coconut oil.
I would just put coconut oil in the palm of my hand, about the size of a nickel. Add a drop or 2 of “Away” oil to the coconut oil and mix a little. I would then put it on my skin.
Add 1-4 drops of “Away” essential oils into your distilled water in the spray bottle. Shake it up, it is easy to use. How simple is that?
How to use it
Use as needed. Spray on you just like you would any bug spray, but be careful, don’t get it into your eyes. I use this on my horses, pets and anyone else that is being “bugged” by bugs.
I hope you enjoyed my post. Please share it with a friend that is feeling “bugged” I love comments and ideas, just leave them below.
