I love using natural ingredients and this Effective Natural Bug Repellent recipe is on I use and it works. I spay it on and work in the garden and the bug do stay away. It smells great and there are no harsh chemicals that are in store bought bug sprays. I've even used this on my dog, no more bug bites. Thank you so much for sharing this free recipe.

I'm certainly going to try this out once summer rolls around again. The last thing anyone wants when camping is a bunch of bugs bothering them. I also really love that it's all natural.
