Do you know how toxic shop bought bug sprays can be? They are seriously harmful for your health. If you need any more convincing, you can read this .
So what are we to do?
Essential oils to the rescue.
Why pay for harmful chemicals when you can make your own natural, healthy bug spray for a fraction of the price – and guess what?
Why does the natural bug spray work?
This bug spray contains mint and Purification essential oils. For centuries mints have been used to embalm, preserve food and ward against insect infestations. All species of mint, both wild and cultivated, contain aromatic properties repulsive to insects. Purification is a blend by Young Living that contains citronella which bugs also hate.
The only oils that I recommend are Young Living therapeutic grade oil. This is because the oils are extracted with such low pressure and low temperature that the therapeutic properties remain intact. So they do what they are supposed to – AND this bug spray saves you money. Because these oils are so strong and concentrated you don’t need to use much of them and these ingredients will last you for ages. I don’t recommend any other oils other than Young Living as they may actually harm you rather than help you.
Add the purification, peppermint essential oils and salt into your spray bottle. Give it a gentle shake.
Fill your spray bottle ( Get yours here) to the top with your distilled water.
Put the bottle top on the bottle and gently shake it.
How to use
Spray yourself and clothes with the spray before you leave the house.
You can also use this spray as an air freshener.
Avoid the eyes and ears. If you do get it into your eyes, use a carrier oil such as olive oil or coconut oil to wipe the oil away. Do not use water – it will make it worse.
How to get these oils
Both of these oils come as part of the premium starter kit , which is how most people get started with therapeutic essential oils. I felt better after just a week of using this kit and my depression, chronic fatigue, insomnia and anxiety was gone after a month. This is why I’m so passionate about this amazing kit as I want you to have this too. Would you like to feel amazing? I am actually giving you this oil free in August! And loads of more freebies.
