This essential oil outdoor spray not only works wonders for keeping your skin protected from any outdoor annoyances, it smells good too! Everyone will be clamoring to use it.
In the summer, we spend a lot of time at my parent’s lake house. We swim, boat, wakeboard, and spend time around the camp fire. But when dusk hits, y’all know what happens. We are pest free during the day, but then the minute the sun starts to dip, things get interesting. They can get especially bad being by the water. So a few years ago I made this DIY essential oil outdoor spray and it has been our go-to ever since!
It’s non-toxic, and all the essential oils in the recipe are safe to use on children as well. It’s super simple to make and keep on hand when you plan to be outdoors after dusk.
