If there's one thing everyone needs in the summer, it's bug spray, but the store-bought chemical-filled brands never seem to do the job very well. Try using a Homemade Bug Spray instead this summer. You'll notice a difference. You won't have to suffer through that horrible, chemical-ly smell that stays on your skin, or worry about accidentally inhaling that disgusting spray when you apply. This bug spray recipe uses essential oils and other natural remedies to keep bugs away.

Note from the designer: "Instead of using conventional, store bought products and showering your body in harmful chemicals, try this homemade bug spray recipe and enjoy your time outdoors this season!"

Who does not need bug spray in the summertime while outdoors? Who hates putting chemicals on their body? This is such a great tutorial for using essential oils to make this bug spray. I am going to make some extras for family and friends. I know they will be pleased. I am also glad to see you can use it on slugs too as they are a problem on my back deck. So if you are looking for that natural bug spray this is a great tutorial. Super easy.
