DIY: All-Natural Bug Spray

 With summer and warmer weather, comes one little nuisance that can seriously hinder a great day in the outdoors: mosquitoes. If you're skeptical about dousing yourself in harsh chemicals to keep these buggers away, we have an all natural DIY solution for you!

Read on for a how-to guide to make natural bug repellent that's not harmful to your precious body — and it smells absolutely wonderful.


  • Witch hazel
  • Mixture of essential oils: Choose from rosemary, thyme, mint, cedar, lavender, catnip, citronella, tea tree, and lemongrass — citrusy and minty scents work best
  • Distilled water
  • Vegetable glycerin


    1. Fill an 8-oz glass spray bottle halfway with distilled water (plastic bottles may possibly be harmed over time due to the essential oils).
    2. Fill almost to the top with witch hazel.
    3. Add in 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin, which will help the bug spray stay on your skin.
    4. If you don’t have glycerin, it will still work without it.
    5. Add in your mixture of essential oils — about 25-50 drops. The more drops you add, the more effective the spray will be.
    6. Screw on the top. Shake. You’re ready for use!
