Home made bug spray

Summer is here and so are the nasty bitting little bugs.. So I have a good recipe that will keep them away when your out in your garden enjoying the fresh summer night..

1. Fill spray bottle 1/2 full with distilled or boiled water.
2. Add witch hazel to fill almost to the top.
3. Add 30-50 drops of essential oils to desired scent. The more oils you use, the stronger the spray will be.

A good combination is of tea tree, eucalyptus, mint, citronella, and lavender.  The lavender added gives a calming smell.
This is good for children's skin too.

So happy bug free summer to all ..
