KEEP THIS POST HANDY!
Hold on to this BUG OFF spray recipe! Tried, true and THIS WORKS!!!! When Tracey with TLC One Drop At A Time shared this one with me, my life changed. Be sure to ‘like’ her page!
WARNING: TOTAL EMO MOMENT
I can be annoyed by just 1 mosquito bite for DAYS. So when I found a working solution for this problem, I actually CRIED. Yep! I did. Because, life the way I had always known it – changed in an instant. Young Living Essential Oils stopped my suffering with grace and ease! No more scratching til I bled, keeping myself up at night, being uncomfortable or paranoid about mosquitos.
The solution I found is effective, inexpensive and safe for our bodies and the planet too!! No joke…pesticides can cause cancer and growth problems just to name a few. I don’t want that on my kids! Just take one itty bitty moment to skim over this information on pesticides… Health Effects of Pesticides Especially important info to arm yourself with if you care for little ones, if you are pregnant or if you wish to become pregnant…
Did you see why avoiding unnecessary toxins is appealing? We don’t need to use harmful synthetic chemicals like those! Promise. God did the work for us already! What if all we need are natural products and His plants???
It actually smells delicious and my younger son who was around 10 years old at the time, called it his ‘cologne’. LOL!
I’m one of those that must taste good to mosquitoes. (LOL. Gettin’ goosebumps just writing this!) And so is my oldest son. The photo below shares a real life experience…
It was one another, ‘OK, mom. I believe Young Living Essential Oils actually work’ moment for him. That is something that really happened, and I felt like a good mommy. 🙂 Priceless!
There TWO uses for this one spray. There’s a proactive use for Bug Off as an offensive smell to mosquitos – as well as a reactive use. I don’t know why, but it stops the itch. 🙂 I’m sure there are probably many other benefits, but these alone are very, very valuable to me. No more paranoia or crazy itching. All without harmful chemicals like DEET, which is a known toxin and killing sea life.
My comfort and the comfort of my family are important. Not to mention all of the things we get to avoid by not swapping blood with strangers… Let that sink in. LOL! (Zika, anyone?)
I thank God for His gift in our plants! Which reminds me… This may not last long. Citronella is in stock, so go on ahead & get you some!!
GET IT WHILE YOU CAN:
The season for Citronella seems to last longer where I live (warm climate) and by the time I needed it for summer 2015 it had just gone out of stock. That was the end of my first year with Young Living. I don’t want to be without Citronella ever again! It was not very convenient!
In the warm months I carry a little spray bottle of Bug Off in my purse everywhere I go, and it ends up being ‘shared’ quite a bit. I make bottles of it for my kids and husband too. Soccer bag, beach bag, golf bag… The alternatives, quite literally – SUCK!!

You can click on the affiliate link under the recipe pic, or right on the above images to order glass spray bottles directly from Amazon. You will want to store this solution in GLASS by the way. Essential oils DO break down petrochemicals and plastics, and you won’t want those sprayed on anyone’s skin. If you’re worried about glass, make your glass bottle shatterproof (& cute!) with duct tape. Keep it simple, sweetie!
