La’au Lapa’au | DIY RECIPE OF THE MONTH: ORGANIC BUG REPELLENT

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

It’s that time of year for patio-chillin’, outdoor grillin’, and camping adventures. When you are looking for something that isn’t laden with chemicals that will keep the pesky insects away, try this DIY Bug Repellent.

I sometimes change up the essential oils I use, but following the lead of many other home-made bug spray recipes, find this blend to be the best in practice (and smells fantastic!). The oil you don’t want to skip is the Citronella because of its power to keep the buzzing at bay.

As with all Essential Oils (EO), test on sensitive skin first to make sure you don’t have any adverse reactions and avoid eyes.

(Added bonus, I sometimes steep rosemary and lavender in my water and witch hazel mix, store in the fridge for a few days before adding to the blend for added oomph!)
