DIY Essential Oil Bug Repellent Spray

July 16, 2015

On these beautiful summer days don't let the bugs chase you indoors! Try this mild but effective essential oil bug repellent recipe and watch the insects flee.

Edens Garden's Citronella and Lavender Bug Away Spray (for a 3 oz. bottle):

This blend should effectively ward off unwanted pesks. Besides that, the blend has therapeutic and antiseptic properties. Lavender essential oils are used by aromatherapists to treat burns and skin irritations as well as to promote calming and ease. The strong aroma of Lavender has a powerful soothing effect on the body and is often used to aid stress and insomnia. Because of its antiseptic and analgesic properties, Lavender may prevent infection and promote healing. 

Edens Garden's Citronella offers just as much to the mix, not to mention a balanced lemon aroma. Citronella essential oil is used to treat colds, fatigue, headaches and excessive perspiration. It has antiseptic and deodorant properties.

    Hi Jenni! We recommend PET plastic, glass or metal spray bottles. This recipe can be used on children 2 years and older.
