Essential Oils Bug Spray – Water Based
 
 
Ingredients
  •  2 oz witch hazel/vodka/apple cider vinegar
  •  2 oz water
  •  10 drops citronella essential oil
  •  10 drops tea tree oil
  •  10 drops lemongrass essential oil
  •  5 drops lemon essential oil
  •  5 drops cedar essential oil
  •  ¼ teaspoon castile/baby soap
Instructions
  1. I used apple cider vinegar, so I mix it with all the essential oils.
  2. Then you should add the castile/baby soap. Don't shake at this point so the essential oils disperse in the liquid. Just let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. After that shake the container well.
  4. Mix in the water and shake again. You should do this each time before you use the spray.

This mixture is suitable for children 2+ years old. Smaller children may not tolerate the essential oils combination so well.

Remember that those fragrances are very powerful compounds that may harm a sensitive skin even if they are all natural. Make sure you use essential oils that are suitable for your child’s age.
