DIY DEET-Free Vanilla Lemon Eucalyptus Mosquito Repellent

3 Ingredient Bug Repellent

We love getting eaten alive by mosquitoes! Not really. So we tried a version of this a couple of springs ago and have used it as our sole way to protect against bug bites when spring and summer arrive. The reason we gave this a shot was because we had a little one join the family and didn’t like the idea of putting something with harsh chemicals on him. Not only is it effective, it smells wonderful and has three simple, clean ingredients. You’ll want to reapply it every hour. It’s safe to spray on clothes as well. I think you’ll be pleased with this DIY DEET-Free Vanilla Lemon Eucalyptus Mosquito Repellent.

We have no problem spraying this over our clothes. It doesn’t leave stains or marks and smells wonderful.
