While outside volunteering and cheering, the last thing you want is a pesky mosquito to put an end to the summer fun. Bug spray can help, but it is made of so many chemicals, we prefer not to put it on our skin if we don’t have to.
Luckily…we have come up with a great chemical free repellent!
Dried lavender flowers
Dried spearmint leaves
Citronella essential oil
Lemongrass essential oil
Boil 1 cup of water and pour over 2 tablespoons of the dried lavender and dried spearmint, add 14 drops of citronella oil, 10 drops of rubbing alcohol, and 7 drops of lemongrass oil. Pour into a spray bottle, shake up and let the repelling begin!
Give your BFF a spray too!!
P.S. mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors so stick with lighter shades for the rest of the summer!
