Natural Bug Repellent


* use distilled water if not going to finish the bottle quickly


  1. Fill the 8-ounce glass spray bottle halfway with witch hazel.
  2. Fill the other half of the bottle up with water, making sure to leave enough space at the top to add the essential oils.
  3. Add 20 drops of On Guard Protective Blend and 20 drops of TerraShield Outdoor Blend to the bottle.
  4. Add 10 drops each of Lavender, Lemongrass, and Peppermint essential oils.
  5. Attach the lid and shake until thoroughly mixed.
  6. To apply, simply spritz a light layer over your skin and your clothing before leaving the indoors for the outdoors. Reapply as needed.


  • This natural spray is a great alternative to typical bug repellents because it will make you smell fresh to yourself, but stinky to bugs, which is exactly the way you want it to be.
  • When you add the power of Lavender, Lemongrass, and Peppermint, to the bug-deterring essential oils already present in the On Guard and TerraShield blends, you get a spray that is sure to keep the bugs far away.
