The warm weather that comes when spring finally arrives means mosquitoes are soon to follow. This is often when bug sprays and store bought bug repellents will be applied. The bad thing about these products is their reliance on chemicals and toxic additives to kill or repel bugs. A better option is to use a chemical-free bug spray.
Essential oils are the active ingredients for a chemical-free bug spray. The reason they are the perfect option for a homemade spray is most bugs cannot tolerate many these compounds. Just about the only thing to consider when making a homemade bug spray is a very low possibility of allergic reaction.
You will need to have a simple spray bottle to apply a chemical-free bug spray. All the ingredients needed for the product will come in liquid form. This means all you need to do is mix them in the proper amounts based on the size of your spray bottle or the quantity you require.
