DIY Pest-Free Summer Spray Recipe

When you're kicking out the toxins and you stop allowing them to cross your threshold, key to sticking with it is finding solutions to all of those pesky problems that are known to pop-up. Pests and summer go together like honey and bees. Here's your easy recipe to keep your family from being pestered while enjoying summertime outside.

4 oz metal or glass spray bottle

1 Tbsp Witch Hazel

15-20 drops Purification Essential Oil (EO) blend (Young Living)

15-20 drops Thieves EO blend (Young Living)

15-20 drops Peppermint EO

Distilled water

Pour the witch hazel into the spray bottle. Add the essential oils. Carefully add the distilled water to the bottle, making sure to leave room for the components of the spray bottle. The last thing you want to do is spill all of your precious essential oils when you screw the lid on...trust me. Sigh! 

Shake the bottle well before spraying. Spray this on friends and family before going outside in order to spend time pest-free.

Working with Essential oils, while science, it isn't rocket-science. So, you can play around with amounts and also with other essential oils in this recipe. Some recommended oils to add to this spray could be Lavender, Cedarwood, and Citronella.
