Summer is drawing near! Can't you just feel it in your soul? The temperatures are rising, humidity is somehow making it difficult to breathe (and causing a mess of my hair) ... Birds are chirping, the flowers are dancing. Oh, it's a beautiful time-of-year!!
Okay, Okay - I'll make the sacrifice and exist among the moist air, and unbelievable frizzy hair paired with this conversation: "Hey, 1985 called, they want their hair back!"..."Why, thank you, kind sir, for bringing that to my attention!!"
I can typically deal with it, because, let's face it - summer is a magical time. But, the one thing I can't deal with - are those pesky mosquitoes.
And, what makes it worse,- is that if I want to enjoy the magic that is Summer - I'm told I have two options:
1. Be eaten alive
2. Douse my body with poison
We've heard it a million times. "There's an oil for that!" And before I really did my research and begun using essential oils myself, I was very skeptical. But, thankfully - my skepticism was demolished when I finally was able to add a 3rd option to my summer mosquito troubles.
3. Use all-natural essential oils
So without further ado, I give to you - the answer to your summer-time prayers!
- 4 oz Spray Bottle
- 2 oz Boiled Water
- 1 oz Witch Hazel
- .5 oz Jojoba Oil - Optional, but will add a nice moisturizing feel!
- Your choice of these mosquito repelling essential oils (Try to pick 3 or more) -- Lavender, Clove, Peppermint, Citronella, Eucalyptus, Basil, Lemon, Geranium, Lemon-Eucalyptus, Thyme, Lemongrass. --- We recommend therapeutic grade!
