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
Glass spray bottle OR glass mason jar
Peppermint essential oil (I use Young Living)
Purification essential oil (I use Young Living)

Coconut oil (optional)

Spray Directions:
1. In a spray bottle (4oz or smaller), put 5 drops of peppermint and 5 drops of purification.  Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water.
2. Spray!
3. Bye bye skeeters!

Cream Directions:
1. Melt 4 oz of coconut oil, and then mix in 5 drops of peppermint and 5 drops of purification.  Pour into the mason jar, and stick in the fridge to harden.
