Bug Off!

With summer fast approaching, those creepy crawly unwanted guests are ready to join the party too. But how do you keep those pesky pests at bay without covering your body in the toxic ingredients included in many popular insect sprays? Well if you’re anything like us, you’d prefer a safer, more natural option and have we got an alternative for you, friends! Simply whip up this super easy, super effective “Bug Off” spray so you can safely repel those annoying critters all summer long!

You’ll need to grab a few materials and products before you get started:

  • 6 oz. glass or stainless steel spray bottle
  • Witch hazel
  • Distilled water
  • Lemongrass 
  • Kunzea 
  • Eucalyptus Radiata


Then all you have to do is add 15 drops of each oil, 1 tablespoon of witch hazel, and enough distilled water to fill your spray bottle before apply the cap and giving it a good shake. It really is that simple! With a few items and a couple of minutes, you can protect your whole family from those pesky bugs all season long! (Note: Be sure to shake the bottle to remix the ingredients before each use.) 

Not a DIY kind of oiler? Well have no fear because you can simply snag Young Living’s awesome pre-made bottle of Insect Repellent on your next order. You can even snag the super convenient Bug Repellent wipes for quick and easy application on the go!
