Updated Bug Spray Recipe

I have been tinkering with my bug spray, since the first batch smelled a lot like citronella and that smell makes me a little woozy.  This recipe is a little lighter and a little more fragrant.

2 fluid oz of witch hazel with aloe vera
a splash (roughly a tablespoon) of olive oil (or other skin-friendly of of your choice)
35 drop of cedarwood oil
25 drops of citronella oil
15 drops of lemongrass oil
15 drops of lavender oil
15 drop of clove oil


A friend asked if they could use baby oil and the answer is NO!  Baby oil has fragrance added that will attract the bugs!  Almond oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, olive oil, etc.  I am trying to figure out how to use coconut oil...
