My son is allergic to mosquito bites, they swell up like crazy every time he gets one, so we avoid them at all costs! The thing is, I don’t really like spraying chemicals on him. Here’s an outdoor spray that we use when we’re outside in the evenings, during the summer. We love to take this one camping with us too! I put it in a little bottle and spritz it around the patio, it smells good, and works great.
Essential Oil outdoor spray
- 4 ounces of Witch Hazel
- 10 drops Thieves essential oil
- 10 drops Purification essential oil
- 10 drops Peppermint essential oil
In an 8 ounce spray bottle, mix all ingredients. Top off with water. Shake and spray on exposed skin.
Thieves® essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products. -YoungLiving.com product description
