 DIY Bug Spray from Dried Herbs

Skill Level: Easy

Time: 20 min.

Cost: $ 15

Ingredients:

  • Distilled water
  • Rubbing Alcohol or Witch Hazel
  • Dried herbs: peppermint, spearmint, citronella, lemongrass, catnip, lavender, etc. It is recommended to use at least one herb from the mint family.
  • Spray Bottle

Instructions: 

  1. Boil 1 cup of water and add 3-4 TBSP of dried herbs total in any combination from the above.
  2. Mix well, cover and let cool (covering is important to keep the volatile oils in!)
  3. Strain herbs out and mix water with 1 cup of witch hazel or rubbing alcohol. Store in a spray bottle in a cool place (fridge is great because then its nice and cool).
  4. Use as needed. Added bonus: it smells great and is very refreshing to the skin.

TIP: If you have the time and want to make a stronger version of this recipe, prepare the herbs in an alcohol mixture as a tincture instead and use this directly as a spray after straining out the herbs.
