A bug repelling blend of eucalyptus citriodora, cinnamon, lemon, clove & rosemary.
Repel annoying bugs this summer, with this blend of oils that will help banish them away from you.
Body - Add 3-5 drops to 30ml of carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil, or add to Little Pot of Wonder and massage on your skin. See dilution ratio guide.
Add a couple of drops on a tissue to inhale when you have a blocked nose, this will help relive.
Mind - Add 2-3 drops into a nice warm bath when you're feeling under the weather.
Soul - Surround yourself with this blend in your room by adding 5 drops to an aroma diffuser or oil burner. This is a great way to repel bugs and insects and will also cleanse the room of airborne germs.
Perfect for fighting off illness! Put one drop in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and inhale.
Inhalation of this blend is one of the best ways to benefit from its awesome properties. When we inhale essential oils, the highly sensitive cells in the back of our nostrils are stimulated which sends signals straight to the brain, so relax and inhale deep.
DIY Bug Repellant Spray -
- 100ml of distilled water or cooled-down boiled water, into a spray bottle.
- A teaspoon of vodka or rubbing alcohol. (this helps mix the oils with water and also preserves)
- 15-20 drops of Bug Off pure blend
Always shake the bottle before spraying it into the air or on the go where there are bugs.
You can actually also use it to clean worktop surfaces with too!! It has wonderful disinfectant properties!
Watch my video on how to make the spray HERE.
Okay, so I'm going to be totally honest, this was originally supposed to be Natural Guard, but I accidentally purchased eucalyptus citriodora, instead of normal eucalyptus and I made loads of bottles before realising it smelt like citronella!
What a happy accident that was, because all of the oils in Natural Guard are also fantastic for repelling bugs. Bug Off is stronger as a bug repellant because of the type of eucalyptus in it! So enjoy repelling those pesky bugs whilst you enjoy your summer.
