Last night I made a fun bug spray bottle with some of my favorite essential oils, witch hazel, and water! 😊
You should take some time to read about the toxic chemicals in standard bug sprays and their side affects. 😳The Think Dirty app is a great tool for this.
25 drops citronella oil
15 drops purification
5 drops peppermint
1/2 cup of witch hazel (Or coconut oil)
Filled the rest up with water.
It smells amazing. I can’t wait to try it tonight on my walk!
* You could also mix it in a carrier oil such as cocunut oil to get a longer lasting repellent affect, but then you would use a different type of bottle to dispense it.. A side benefit of the coconut oil is that it also acts as a sunscreen from UV rays.
Also, if you ever need a cute label let me know. I would love to work with you to create something you love. (Sydnie Bonin on Instagram and Facebook)
