Insect Repellent

A perfect homemade and natural recipe for repelling insects (rather than killing them) using essential oils

by craftbits (Shellie Wilson)

What you need

4 ounces (120ml) of water in a water spray bottle
5 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil
3 drops of Lemongrass essential oil
3 drops of Citronella essential oil

Instructions

Mix the oils into the water, shake well and then spray into the air.

This won’t kill any insects but will repel them.

Make sure you don’t spray onto food areas or into your eyes!
