Essential oils are great for helping repel mosquitoes and other pesky bugs in the Summer months. Here’s a quick and easy way to make your own all-natural bug repellent. I make this for Molly because she has a severe and painful reaction to bug bites! Make sure you’re careful when spraying near your face and keep away from your eyes. Give it a try! And don’t forget, if you already have bug bites, our Sea Buckthorn Balm helps relieve the redness and itching.
