Make your own bug spray
While we love Pharmaca’s all-natural bug repellents (check out Badger’s Anti-Bug Balm or Quantum’s Buzz Away), we also like the idea of making our own insect repellent with a few of our favorite essential oils.
According to an article in Whole Living
, “Essential oils that have pungent, spicy, or woodsy odors repel insects by masking our natural scent.” They offer up this recipe for a DIY repellent, perfect for mixing in one of our My Own Blend bottles:
5 drops patchouli essential oil
2 ounces of witch hazel
8-10 drops of cedarwood essential oil
Apply frequently on clothes (don’t spray on face). Enjoy the outdoors!
