ESSENTIAL OIL BUG SPRAY

Summer Essentials - Make Your Own Bug Repellent

Nothing ruins an outdoor barbecue or picnic by the lake shore faster than a swarm of annoying, buzzing mosquitoes. And none of us want to worry about ticks or fleas when out camping.

At the same time, many of us are rightly concerned about spraying chemicals all over our bodies, especially on our children. Although DEET has been on the market for years and is regarded as safe and effective by most, some of us would still like an alternative, especially one just as effective.

Essential Oils have long been used in both traditional cultures and western industrialized societies to both repel and attract bugs and insects. Industrial derivatives of natural Essential Oils like Citronella and Lemon Eucalyptus have even been shown to be more effective than DEET (as reported by Consumer Reports). With this in mind, we did a bit of research and came up with a few winning formulas. We use our Hydrating Botanical Mist Base to use on your body and our PureFresh Advanced Odor Neutralizer Fabric & Room Spray Base to use in the space around you and your clothing.

Keep Bugs Away Using Pure Essential Oils

Use this spray whenever you will be exposed to bugs. Our Hydrating Botanical Base is incredibly moisturizing, so you don't need to worry about spraying on too much!

Simply fill your choice of spray bottle with our PureFresh Base and add up 1% Essential Oils.

For a 16oz Bottle that would be about 7-10 drops of Essential Oil.

Using your Bug Spray

Your bug spray will be most effective when you use it in combination with other preventative measures to ward off pests. Basics like covering food and eliminating standing water go a long way toward avoiding the problem in the first place. It also gives non-chemical solutions like our Essential Oil Bug Repellent to work effectively.
