Keep pesky insects away with this all-natural DIY insect repellent blend!
This recipe comes straight from a resident of the beautiful island of Hawaii! Living an active outdoor lifestyle but having an allergy to deet products created quite the problem for this Hawaiian resident, so he created his own effective bug repellent to keep himself bug-free while enjoying the activities he loves!
Blend hydrosols together in a 4 oz PET spray bottle.
Add the aloe vera gel.
Drop essential oils into the hydrosol blend.
Add the solubol to help emulsify the essential oils with the hydrosol.
Shake well to blend all ingredients. Shake before each use.
Spray every 2 - 3 hours as needed for bug and mosquito control. If sweating, spray on more frequently. The aloe vera in this blend helps the spray to stay longer on your skin.
This blend was created at a 3% dilution. We recommend a small patch test to ensure there is no skin sensitivity.
Kid safety: Safe for kids 10 and over.
This spray should be used w/in 3-6 mo due to the all-natural, preservative-free ingredients.
