somehow my “sunday’s recipe” posts keep slinking over to monday…or later. whoops! i had every intention of posting last week, but you know how life can get. i am at the end of my school year, just wrapping up with post-service teacher days and then it’s summmmer!
i am excited about this week’s recipe because it is perfectly useful for this time of year: essential oil bug spray! for this recipe i use a 2 or 4 oz. glass spray bottle. if you prefer an the oil based version, just use a different topper.
essential oil based bug repellent
5-10 drops lemon essential oil
5-10 drops peppermint essential oil
5-10 drops lavender essential oil
* optional additions: 3 drops thyme, 3 drops bergamot, 5 drops citronella
fill to the top with filtered water and spray all over your body & clothes if you’ll be exposed to bugs, especially mosquitoes! this works as an oil blend too if you’d like to rub it all over your skin, i suggest fractionated coconut oil or sesame oil for your base.
