Homemade Natural Bug Spray using Essential Oils
I have to start off by telling you that I am not one that follows any kind of popular trend or fade. When I first heard of essential oils and all the natural ways people are using them I was intrigued. I’m embarrassed to say that I started with a huge kit I found on Amazon for really, really cheap. It wasn’t until I was introduced to Young Living essential oils that I knew there were big differences between brands. It’s not really easy to figure out how much of an oil is pure because of how it’s regulated. The easiest thing for me to read was learning that some oils and brands can be digested and most are for external use only. I’ve learned to steer clear of the external use only oils that claim to be pure.
