DIY Bug Spray

Good morning and happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend; we certainly did!  The Mr. took Thursday and Friday off, so we had a 4-day weekend with daddy home.  I love weekends like that :-)

Okay today I want to share my bug spray with you.  I try my best to make sure that everything around Dutch is promoting his health as much as possible.  With the mosquitos already in full force this spring in Houston, I wanted to make sure I had a healthy bug spray option for him.  This homemade bug spray is safe and effective for adults as well as young children.  There are two ways to make this: you can either have a spray or a cream.  I made the cream last year (and I still have it because apparently I made enough for everyone in the entire state of Texas), and this year I made the spray.DIY Bug Spray
