Do-it-Yourself Bug Spray & Tick Repellent

All Natural Homemade (Do-it-Yourself) Bug Spray & Tick Repellent:

Summer is here and so are the bugs.  Since we didn’t have a harsh winter to kill off a lot of insects, many are predicting a spike in insect infestations and tick bites this coming season.  As an avid hiker and outdoors family, we refuse to let the little critters stop us from having quality family time on the trails this summer break.  So I have put together my personal natural Bug Spray and Tick Repellent that does not have potential harmful chemicals like DEET in many store-bought bug sprays.

Bug Spray:

  1. 1/2 cup of witch hazel
  2. 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  3. 40 drops of your choice or 1 or more of these essential oils: Citronella, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Rosemary or Tea Tree Oil)
  4. Pour contents into a 8 ounce spray bottle (glass preferably)
  5. Spray over the body especially ankles, wrists, neck and behind the ears.  Avoid eyes and mouth.

Tick Repellent

  1. Use Rose Geranium Essential Oil drops on ankles, wrists, neck and behind the ears.

Make this summer fun and get back to nature without the fear of the mosquitos, ticks and other insects!
