Organic Bug Repellent

Every couple of weeks we need to replenish the organic bug repellent. Here’s the recipe…super easy!

Fill container (about 4oz. Almond o Flaxseed Oil). Add 20 drops each of essential oils (mixture should be 10% Essential Oil:

  • Lemon Eucalyptus
  • Lemongrass
  • Thyme
  • Peppermint (for gnats)
  • Lavender

Shake well. Apply every couple of hours. Good stuff!

The original recipe called for flaxseed oil, but we found that it stained.  We switched to Fractionated Coconut Oil or Almond Oil as the base.
