Zero DEET. Non-Toxic Insect Repellant!

It is here.

Spring has sprung. And we all know what that means!! Nasty bug bites as we try to enjoy out sweet summer nights.

Here I sit on my back patio. The cool breeze blowing, the smell of the freshly bloomed Rose bush tickling my nose, my little boy ‘fixing’ the lawn furniture with his tools and zero worries about mosquitos biting the crapolie out of me and him. Ahhhh. Refreshing. Rewarding. Exciting. =)

How am I worry free you may ask. Because I have made a non-toxic, zero DEET, Zero cancer carcinogen causing Bug Spray!

I am so excited to share this recipe with you friends, and excited that you too, will not have to worry about the nasty bugs biting you and your littles. Wahoo!

The best part is, ALL of these oils come in your Premium Starter Kit. Every day I am more and more amazed how much you can really do with these 11 oils. If you haven’t purchased your kit, you may do so HERE! I promise you will not regret it.

This graphic shows making the spray in an 8-10 oz spray bottle, but I wanted to keep it small to keep in my purse so I used a 2 oz amber spray bottle. You can purchase yours HERE.

Recipe:

In a 2 oz spray bottle use

  1. 2 drops YL Peppermint EO
  2. 2 drops YL Purification EO
  3. 2 drops YL Thieves EO (sn: ticks do NOT like cinnamon, so double bonus here!)
  4. 1 oz Witch Hazel
  5. 1 oz Water

Check out this short Video I made to show you through the steps!

Mix it all up! and you are ready to go! Super easy, super fast and the best is knowing it is all natural and not going to harm you in any way.

Spray directly on skin and/or clothes as needed!

* I did a quick mock test today. I only sprayed my legs and kept my arms clear. I swatted off 3 mosquitos from my arms and zero from my legs, from being outside for only 10 minutes. It works and I couldn’t be happier!

DIY Foaming Hand Soap

OH.MY.Gosh. Someone please tell me why I have waited so long to make this!? I mean, paying $3.69 for each bottle of soap makes zero sense when you have the accessibility to make it yourself for little to no cost. Especially having 2 boys where I am telling them constantly to *insert mom voice here* “Wash your hands!”. LOL. This is a healthy frugal option and I am not sure why I have been pushing it to the side.

This literally took me ONE minute to make. It was so easy and quick that it almost startled me! haha! I was like “whoa! That is it! No way”

HandSoap

Here are the simple ingredients:

  • Water (distilled or boiled. I used boiled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Oil (I used Avocado Oil)
  • Liquid Castle Soap. I purchased mine HERE.
  • Essential Oil (your choice) 6-10 drops depending on what you like. purchase yours here.

Instructions:

  1. Fill the soap dispenser 2/3 full of water leaving room for the top and the soap to be added.
  2. Add at LEAST 2 tablespoons of liquid castle soap. * Do not add the soap first or it will bubble up when you add the water. (I used 3 tablespoons for the extra foam)
  3. Add both oils, the Olive and whichever essential oil you choose. ( I used Thieves for the naturally occurring immune boosting properties).
  4. Close and twirl around to mix.
  5. Use knowing you are replacing harsh chemicals with a non-toxic soap for your family.

JUST LIKE THAT…..BOOM!

And just as I use the Thieves Cleaner, I will now have a 100% non-toxic Thieves hand soap.

It just blows my mind the 47239578932758923709 uses these Essential Oils can play in every day non-toxic healthy living. Not only can you use them topically, internally, or even in the air, you can use them in every day cleaning products and SO much more.

Toothpaste, face wash, mouthwash, deodorant, facial cream, skin cream, sunscreen, bug spray, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, shampoo, and the list can literally go on and on. Basically anything you can think of that is made with a chemical overload, can be made 100% non-toxic and safe for your family!

If you are interested in getting your hands on these Essential Oils that can be used for so many products, you can score your Starter Kit HERE. There are 11 oils and the possibilities are literally endless in the different uses!

You can even make different hand soaps for different bathrooms in the house. A Peppermint Lavender soap would be great in the guest bathroom, or an Orange blossom soap for the master bathroom  (make sure to use a glass dispenser for citrus oils) and a Thieves for the kitchen!
