As I posted earlier to natural ways to keep bugs off are to consume a few tbs of apple cider vinegar a day and to take b vitamins.  But for a natural spray, here is my recipe and it works great!

I love making as many essentials as I can to keep toxicity out of our lives and save money!

I have researched the toxitity in Perfumes.  This has led me to create my own scent as well as for my husband. You can also explore and make room spays for your bathroom or baby room.  They make great gifts as well!  I make perfume like this:

In a glass 2 oz bottle drop in:

  • 6 drops of lilac essential oil
  • 12 drops of grapefruit essential oil
  • 12 drops of orange essential oil
