If you are looking for homemade bug spray that is a Toxin Free Bug Spray, you'll love this easy recipe. This is an essential oil bug recipe used for mosquito repelling.
Having kids, it is so important to know exactly what we are putting on their skin. We want to protect them from bugs and mosquitos but we also don't want to be covering their skin with insect repellents with toxins!
DIY natural crafts are my favorite, like homemade insect repellents, because you know exactly what goes into the items that you are using because they are homemade remedies.
My family loves going RV'ing. We bought an RV a few years ago and love to spent weeks away on adventures. The downside to adventures is often we find a lot of bugs. We went on a trip recently to Bear Lake Utah and the mosquitos were the worst that I have ever seen them.
Within minutes, the kids were complaining because they were getting mosquito bites. We are desperate for repellents that actually help while being a natural alternative to commercial bug sprays.
This DIY bug spray is great because it helps with not getting a mosquito bite but you don't have to worry about what you are putting on your kids. Plus making homemade bug spray with essential oils, it smells great, too!
Why do you want to use natural bug spray?
Using a natural insect repellent is nice because you are using products that you trust. You are able to make your repellent spray in bulk if needed. If you have the oil blend on hand then you will never run out when you need it. This essential oil bug spray is perfect to use around home, on outings or on vacation.
