I absolutely love spending time outdoors in the summer. There is nothing better than a summer evening sitting by a campfire with family and friends. Except for the pesky bugs that tend to interrupt an otherwise peaceful night outside. I can’t stand using those other sprays with DEET and other harmful chemicals. Not only do they not smell good at all, they are just not good for you! I never thought that it was possible to have an outdoor spray that actually smelled good! Lately, I’ve been asked what is that smell?? Everyone (including me) is very surprised at how good an outdoor spray can smell and actually work to keep the bugs away!
I highly recommend you try this out for your next outdoor adventure. It will keep the pesky bugs away, and won’t break the bank. I love finding new ways to use essential oils, and I can’t wait to share this recipe with you. The best part is…all three oils come in the Premium Starter Kit! If you haven’t started your oily journey yet and would like some more information on essential oils, check out how you can start on my team and get the Premium Starter Kit thru Young Living here!
Ingredients Needed to make DIY Camping Spray with Essential Oils:
- 4 – 2 oz. Glass Spray Bottles (I used these bottles)
- 10 drops of Purification Essential Oil
- 10 drops of Thieves Essential Oil
- 10 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
- 4 oz. of witch hazel
- 4 oz. of distilled water
Mix together all the ingredients above and pour them into the glass bottles using a funnel. That’s it! You’re ready to enjoy the outdoors without being bothered by those pesky bugs! 🙂
