The minion and I went to a dog park the other day and almost got eaten alive. We both walked away with so many bug bites that I was spurred on to stop procrastinating and make our own bug repellent. Then I had to put it in a comically large spray bottle because that’s all we had.
Homemade Bug Repellent
1/3 cup witch hazel
15 drops eucalyptus essential oil
20 drops citronella oil
Mix in a spray bottle and spray on clothes and hair before going out. It is safe to spray it on the skin, but it will last longer on your hair and clothes than your skin. Be sure to shake it up before you use each time.
I want to plant some citronella plants near our garden because we get eaten up when we’re out there too.
