It’s slowly getting warmer outside, and today I wanted to share with you my recipe for a all natural DIY Bug Repellent Lotion
It’s almost warm outside. I know a lot of you got snow this last weekend, hello isn’t it April?? We just moved into a new house this past winter and we are getting a new fence for the yard. They started it all last week and I can’t wait for it to be all done. My boys NEED an outdoor space to run and play and get all that energy out. Since we will be spending a lot of time outside this summer I decided to make my own DIY Bug Repellent Lotion. I know you all have heard the bad stories going around about the chemicals found in everyday products we use. When I found out you can use Essential Oils to make your own all natural bug repellent I knew I had to give it a try.
Make sure you are using a good oil that doesn’t have any chemical in it. My favorite are Rocky Mountain Oils.
I put mine in this mason jar with a seal to keep for the summer! So far we have had great luck with it.
For this DIY you will need:
- Mix together coconut oil and shea butter. Add drops of oil and mix well.
- Rub on skin when going outside.
Keep this one all summer and for ones to come, Pin it!!
