DIY Essential Oil Bug Spray

For the May long weekend, Mike and I headed up to Northern Ontario to spend time up at his family’s cottage. If you know anything about Northern Ontario you know that the May long weekend could be a disaster for bugs. So of course I made a DIY bug spray to bring with us.

I was determined to come prepared with a natural solution to fight off bugs in my continued quest to reduce the number of toxins I’m applying to my skin.

So in my newfound DIY mode, I ordered the 30ml Cobalt Blue Mister Bottle from My Essential Business, filled it with water and added 2 drops each of Melaleuca (otherwise known as Tea Tree oil), Peppermint, Geranium, and Lemongrass Essential Oil by dōTERRA.

I’m happy to report that with the assistance of a very sexy mosquito hat, my adult onesie and this bug spray I received no mosquito bites and only one black fly bite on my thumb.
