Homemade Essential Oil Bug Repellent



BugRepellentGNOWSummer is in full swing now! Many hours are being spent outside playing, gardening, camping and barbecuing. Friends and families gather to enjoy the extra hours of sunlight, unfortunately some uninvited guest (aka bugs) like to come to the party. Those pesky things are hard to keep away!

When it comes to mosquitos and ticks, there are good reasons to want to repel them. Mosquitos can transmit West Nile Virus and ticks can carry Lyme disease, neither of which anyone wants to have. Growing up my mom always used bug repellent from the store. I hated the smell of it and how the chemicals would linger in your nose for a while but I used it anyway because, well, that’s what you did.

Join my at GNOWFGLINS to learn how to make your own Essential Oil Bug Repellent!
