There are some easy natural ways to beat the bugs in the summer. An essential oil based bug spray not only smells great but is effective in deterring common pests. Another beautiful thing about a natural repellent is that you don't have to wash it off in order to sleep well at night and it doesn't contain chemicals. Winner!
I have made a natural insect spray for years. The ingredients are:
Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
Patchouli Essential Oil
Cedarwood Essential Oil
Rosemary Essential Oil
Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil
Lavender Essential Oil
Rose Geranium Essential Oil
Lemon Essential Oil
Blended together this is a terrific smelling BUG-OFF! Don't have time to create it? Order it online in my Etsy Shop or stop by the farm store. By the way, in appropriate dilutions it is great for your horse, child or dog. One stop shop!
