Homemade, All-natural Bug Spray, DEET-free

bugspray

When we made the switch to all-natural products, one of the things most frequently requested by my family and readers was a recipe for all-natural bug spray that actually works. I mixed this up a few weeks ago, and then it got cold again, so I didn’t get to try it for a while. Last week, I went out to mow just before dusk. After only a few minutes, I was getting bombarded by mosquitoes, so I applied my bug spray and headed back out. I immediately noticed a difference! The mosquitoes were leaving me alone. I’ve used it a couple times since then, and I still love it.

You’ll need an 8-oz. glass spray bottle, preferably cobalt or amber. Not sure where to get one? See this post.

Ingredients:

To make, simply add all ingredients to your bottle, and shake. Be sure to shake before each use, as the ingredients will separate. Do not spray directly on your face. Instead, spray into your hands and rub on face and ears.

NOTE: Because this spray is all-natural, you may find you need to reapply it more often.
