Essential Oils- Natural Pest Control!

All-Natural Bug Spray!

I hate bugs. I know, I know, God’s green earth, love all creatures, etc. But bugs are the worst. However, I also don’t love the idea of exposing my loved ones to harsh chemicals just to avoid seeing and getting bites from creepy crawlies. So I’ve turned to natural pest control and will never go back! 

I’m going to show you the easiest bug spray ever that works against mosquitos, as an anti-itch remedy if you already have a bite, and can even be used around the home to avoid pest invasions. Three ingredients. So easy! 

What You’ll Need

  1. Lavender Essential Oil
  2. Peppermint Essential Oil
  3. Water
  4. Spray Bottle 

What to Do

  • Fill your spray bottle 3/4 of the way up with water. 
  • If it holds 8 oz. of water, add 25 drops of each oil to the water. 
  • If it holds less, add up to 20 drops of each oil to avoid skin irritation. 
  • Replace lid of bottle and shake to mix oils with water. 
  • Spray oil on skin before going outside, after a bug bite, or before bed if sleeping outdoors. 
  • Pro Tip:

    • Spray in corners and along windows of your home to prevent spiders, ants, and other pests from entering or feeling welcome in your home. 

Enjoy your Natural Pest Control!
