Make Your Own Insect Repellent

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I don’t like to use the store-bought insect repellents because of all the chemicals, and the nasty smell. So I make my own we have been using this for a couple of years and it seems to work really well plus it doesn’t smell as bad as store-bought.

It is really easy to make you just need a couple of empty spray bottles, witch hazel, citronella E.O., Lemongrass E.O., Lavender E.O., and Peppermint E.O.

Pour 1/2 a cup or with hazel in a small container, I just mix mine in the measuring cup.


Add 8 Drops of citronella E.O.
5 Drops of Lemongrass E.O.
6 drops of Lavender E.O.
3 drops of Peppermint E.O.
I use a dropper to measure out mine this way I  accurate drops.


Mix well


Pour into your bottles


Shake before using.


This sure beats using the horrible store bought that is so bad for you.
