Wellness Mama’s Homemade Bug Spray

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.

This recipe is a gentle, non-toxic recipe that combines essential oils and witch hazel and was gentle enough for children to use.

For use on really little ones, we suggest diluting with water so that it won’t irritate their delicate skin. Witch hazel has astringent properties and when combined with certain types of essential oils, works to repel those pesky insects.
