After our trip to the Superior Hiking Trail, Charlie and I decided to take a stab at making our own bug spray! And guess what?! IT WORKS!
Homemade Bug Spray
-Castor oil with peppermint oil in it ( you could even replace this with castor soap with peppermint)
- couple drops of Cedarwood essential oil (which the Native Americans supposedly used),
- couple drops of Geranium oil
- couple drops of Citronella oil
- couple drops of Eucalyptus oil
-water to fill the spray bottle up
Mix in a small portable spray bottle and get yourself outside! :)
