Natural Pest Control & Homemade Bug Spray

Got a bug problem? Essential oils to the rescue for a natural and effective solution!

My favorite doTerra oil for bugs is TerraShield, Repellent Blend. You can apply the oil blend topically to the areas on your body you want to protect. You can also make an all natural bug spray by diluting TerraShield with coconut oil or water in a spray bottle. If you use water, shake well before using. I would probably put 20-30 drops as I am an ultimate mosquito magnet, but some people may only need 8-10 drops to ward off pesky mosquitoes. TerraShield is a very affordable alternative to toxic DEET store bought bug sprays. It is $9.50 wholesale price for a 15ml bottle and a little bit goes a long way.

Already been bit? Try using Melaleuca, Lavender and/or Purify blend to clear up those bites. I make a blend of Melaleuca and Purify. Put 30 drops Melaleuca and 10 drops Purify in a 5ml bottle and then fill the remainder of the bottle with fractionated coconut oil.
