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!

Monday Blues?! Not this Mum.

I look forward to Mondays?! Wait, what? 

Yes. I admit. I do. 

Go ahead, leave me the crazy comments! Hehe

Do not get me wrong, I do love the weekends. It’s family time, I get help with the littles from my wonderful hubby, we go to Church, and spend time just lounging around!

 But. Yes there is a but….

Monday’s are wonderful because it’s back to the routine. Back to having the house back to myself where there is just me and my two year old. It may be chaotic but it’s not as crazy as the weekends! Monday almost feels as if it’s a start of a vacation. Us humans thrive on routine, just as toddlers do. My toddler does SO much better during the week with going down for naps, eating a big lunch and just being a lot more calm. It is a known fact that we all do better on a schedule! That’s why new parents are always told “now, you put that baby on a schedule, you hear me?” – I was told that SO much with my first! And I did the opposite. Now with my second, I did put him on a schedule and wow, how time went by much smoother. No more super meltdowns out in public because if it’s close to nap time then you know not to even go! Anyways, bottom line is, it works.

So now Monday is here, I’m couch chillen with my toddler, which he never does over the weekend when daddys home (weeeeee! Constant play time!) and I’m just soaking it away as if I’m on vacation. Lime Essential Oil mixed with Spearmint in the diffuser, no hustle and bustle & no ‘having’ to go somewhere. Ahhhhhh it is almost as if I’m at the Spa. 

Think about it, you may actually look forward to Mondays as well and not even realize it 😉

Remain with a positive mindset and you too will have a wonderful day, every day. 

Be blessed,

Elishia
