DIY Essential Oil Mosquito Repellent

DIY Essential Oil Mosquito Repellent l A better way to keep bugs away! l EverythingEtsy.com

I use this DIY Essential Oil Mosquito Repellent daily this time of year!

I live in Florida where dealing with Mosquitos is part of the package deal.  It’s like you get the beautiful palm trees, sunshine and beaches, but you need a few {or way more than a few} mosquitos to keep it fair.

I’ve been through two double batches of this already this summer and IT WORKS!  It also smells great…so, you don’t have to walk around smelling awful or worrying about the chemicals you just sprayed all over you.

Here’s how to make your own with just two ingredients…woot!

Supplies…

Really…that’s it!

Make it! DIY Mosquito Spray on EverythingEtsy.com

Start with 6 ounces of water.

Making Mosquito Spray with doTERRA Essential Oils l EverythingEtsy.com

Add 45 drops of TerraShield to your spray bottle.  It’s easy to count the drops if you turn the bottle completely upside down.

Give it a few shakes before you spray and you’ll be protected for those pesky mosquitos.  You’ll love the smell and the feel so much better about this than those store bought sprays.

TerraShield is only $12.67 a bottle!  You can make at least 4-5 bottles of spray!

Other ways to use it…

  • Add a few drops to Coconut Oil and rub it on exposed areas
  • Use in a diffuser to scare away mosquitos
  • Rub it on directly from the bottle…it’s small enough to keep in your purse.

I had to share this simple solution with you!  I hope it saves you lots of trouble this summer!

      I use a drop or two of lavender and it helps for most common bug bites. Lavender is good for about a million things…lol! :) Have an awesome summer!
