Herbal Bug Spray for Summer

I hate mosquitoes. But they LOVE me.

That's why my Herbalist Guild decided to feature a DIY herbal bug spray at our first big general meeting. I've decided to share it here as well to spread the love, or share in the hate of those pesky critters, as is my case. This blend was put together by our secretary, Rebecca!

1 oz spray bottle

Herbal Bug Spray

1 oz spray bottle
Distilled water
approx. 5 drops each of rosemary, thyme and geranium essential oil

Fill the spray bottle with water and drop each of the essential oils into the bottle. Spray on when needed!

Added bonus- you will smell nice when you use this spray unlike commercial bug sprays. Smelling nice + keeping mosquitoes away = awesomeness.

Thanks for sharing this recipe, Rebecca! I couldn't make it to the general meeting myself to make this blend with everyone, so I'll have to make some on my own.

Have a happy, bug-free summer!

  1. NOW - how about moth repellent? Moths are having a banner year. Make that your next post!
