Avoid Deet; stay safe in those spring and summer months with all-natural bug repellents. Deet is a known carcinogen and has been shown to cause skin irritation, lack of concentration, nausea, headaches, and dizziness.
And if that’s not enough, read this:
How to use in your diffuser: Place 10 – 20 drops in your home diffuser (less if using a smaller diffuser such as 200 ml capacity ones) and take it out on the patio to repel insects.
To make your own bug spray: Place 10 drops Citronella, 5 drops Eucalyptus Lemon and 2 or 3 drops of any combination of the Lavender, Cedarwood, or Patchouli into your Ty Essential Oil spritzer bottle (free with your purchase). Add 1/4 cup witch hazel, and 1/2 ounce of apple cider vinegar. Mix/shake lightly. You now have an excellent bug repellent spray with no toxic deet. This recipe can be adjusted to your personal preference. You can also use Lime, but do not use Lime directly on the skin during daylight hours as it is phototoxic.
It can also be used on your houseplants, mixed with water, to deter unwanted pests.
