Whooo Hoo! Yesterday my mom and I finally got to the scrapbooking retreat and got to start our projects. Mine was this of course. We actually got up at the hotel to be at the retreat by 550am so I could get in at 6am. I took a few things inside and then we left to go get breakfast along with a few other errands which ended up lasting most of the day. Anyways, the official first day of summer is next Wednesday, whcih means in my neck of the woods at least mosquitos and lots of other biting bugs. I’m pretty sure the second I walk outside every bugs sense me from miles away and come attack. 🤣 So, let’s get started with “Bye Bye Bugs Spray….”
- Young Living Essential Oils
- Witch Hazel
- Rubbing Alcohol 91%
- 3oz Spray Bottle
- Distilled Water
- Himalyan Pink Salt
Everything But the EOs:
To start, I added about 1.5 ounces of distilled water to my spray bottle. Then, I added a half ounce of the rubbing alcohol and witch hazel. Once I had those three in my bottle, I added a pinch worth of Himalyayn Pink Salt. Of course, you can use regular salt but that’s what I had on hand. I tried to get vodka or something like, unfortunately the county the scrapbooking retreat we are at for the week/weekend is a ‘dry’ country therefore they apparently do not have anything but wine. It took three to four stores to finally figure that one out.
Adding the EOs:
With everything but the essential oils in my spray bottle I started by adding about 15 drops of Citronella Essential Oil. Next, I added about 10 drops of Lemongrass, Rosemary, and Thieves Essential Oils. Finally, I added five drops of Peppermint, Cinnamon Bark, and Palo Santo Essential Oils to my “Bye Bye Bugs Spray” bottle.
There you go! If you’re like me, this is a great “Bye Bye Bugs Spray” to make for anytime you are out and about for the summer or any other time of the year.
