Homemade Insect Repellent Spray with Essential Oils

"I was looking for natural ways to protect my family from mosquitoes and other bugs outside so we could enjoy being outside. Some essential oils naturally repel mosquitoes and other bugs, so I used a blend of those oils to make a natural bug spray. Lemon eucalyptus has been proven to repel mosquitoes and other bugs for hours. You can use the same blend that I did, or you can use one of the several oils that I suggest. This is perfect for when you're at home or away."
