Hey all, I’ve been fielding DMs and emails like crazy in the last twenty four hours about my DYI homemade essential oil bug spray recipe. You see I mentioned it somewhere and now it’s a hot item for folks to want.
I thought I’d hook all my regular readers up with this recipe as well since I know you love things that are both non-toxic and homemade. Remember if you use a plastic spray bottle it must be approved for essential oils. If you are not sure I say stick with aluminum or glass.
So here is the recipe with additional notes listed below. To get the oils in this combo plus the top ten oils and a diffuser at 25% off click here: OILS. (I have only included Terrashield and Geranium, you can add Lemongrass or Cedarwood if you wish to this cart.) For the month of June you will also get Balance, Aromatouch and Past Tense free with this cart. Pretty amazing combo of three top stress and tension blends for free! Anyway back to the recipe:
DYI Bug spray
4 oz or 30 ml spray bottle (stainless, glass or approved plastic)
20 drops Terrashield
20 drops Geranium
optional: 20 drops of Cedarwood or Lemongrass
1-2 Tbsp of Witch Hazel for stabilizing the oils in water
Fill remainder with distilled or filtered water
Terrashield is dōTERRA’s proprietary protection blend and is filled with all sorts of protecting oils like Arborvitae, Catnip, Cedarwood, Litsea, Ylang Ylang, Nootka, and Vanilla bean absolute. Additionally it has Lemon Eucalyptus which the CDC rated as more effective than DEET for keeping bugs at bay. DEET of course is the highly corrosive and toxic ingredient in most OTC bug sprays. This blend will keep you bug free without any dangerous side effects from toxic contents.
