It’s hard to believe that it’s already the second week in July! We have only been camping twice this year…..how about you? Here are some pics of some of our favorite places to camp in Michigan and the UP 🙂
OMG the bugs have been horrible in the #Mitten already this year. You can not step outside in the evening without some camping spray on, unless you want to get eaten alive by all the mosquitoes. And for some reason they LOVE me!! I have been slowly replacing our personal products at home with all-natural ones. And I love making them myself with my Young Living Essential Oils. Really it’s so easy to do and so much healthier for your family. So next up, I made camping spray. It is wonderful!!!
I try to stay away from camping sprays found in stores. Most contain harsh chemicals, including DEET. Did you know in a 2009 study, it was found DEET can interfere with the activity of enzymes that are vital for the nervous system to function properly. DEET can also cause skin rashes, burning and asthmatic reactions. So I of course I opt for a natural approach to preventing those bug bites using my Young Living essential oils.
I hope you love this Camping Spray as much as I do!!
Add 10 drops of each of each oil to 3 ounces of distilled water
Add 1 ounce of fractionated coconut oil
Shake and spray!!!
