DIY All Natural Bug Repellant


I love living in the Granite State, however, I do not love the plethora of ticks, mosquitoes and black flies that we seem to have.  There is nothing worse than being chased off of your deck by a swarm of mosquitoes.  I am also not a fan of the pesticides and chemicals widely suggested to avoid Lyme disease, West Nile, Zika, Triple E and the other diseases ticks and mosquitoes can transmit.  This all natural, DIY Bug Repellant is sure to keep your adventures pesticide and bug free.

⁃ 1:1 water and witch hazel
⁃ 10 drops citronella oil
⁃ 10 drops lemon grass oil
⁃ 10 drops tea tree oil
⁃ 5 drops lavender oil
⁃ 5 drops peppermint oil

Compine all ingredients in a large spray bottle for easy application.  Safe for use on dogs too! Unfortunately, cats cannot metabolize these oils, so please do not use it on them.
