NATURAL INSECT REPELLENT FOR ADULTS [recipe]
My Homemade Bug Repellent smells amazing and keeps the bugs away, while also being good for your skin. Apple Cider Vinegar and Witch Hazel are natural astringents. ACV naturally balances the pH of your skin, while Witch Hazel helps ease skin abrasions and irritations such as acne, bruises, redness, eczema, oily skin, excess sweating, varicose veins, razor burn, and sun damage. My special mix of essential oils are all proven bug repellents.
Take an 8-oz spray bottle, add ½ cup witch hazel, ¼ cup organic apple cider vinegar, ¼ cup distilled water, 44 drops of essential oils: 12 drops lemongrass, 12 drops citronella,10 drops eucalyptus, 6 drops tea tree, 5 drops rosemary, 3 drops peppermint.
Avoid spraying in your eyes and mouth as the vinegar and oils can irritate.
