It would be annoying to be bitten bugs. If you want to get rid of bugs, you have to invest in harmful repellents that can cause harm to your health.

There is another way to get rid of bugs without harming your health, or the health of your family. You can create your own spray.

It is not harmful to your children’s health or your own. But, these bug spray ingredients are strong enough to get rid of irritating bugs. Let us know how to get rid of bugs with this simple recipe:


  • 10 drops of Lavender
  • 1-15 oz. bottle of witch hazel
  • 10-12 drops of Citronella
  • 10-12 drops of Eucalyptus
  • 10-12 drops of lemongrass


Take two or three small bottles and divide the witch hazel between them. Use one bottle for outside and the other one for whatever else you would need bug repellent for.

Use them at night as bugs are hyper active at night times. Fill the bottles, leaving roughly ½” of room at the top

Now add each of the other oils to the witch hazel. Close the lid and shake the bottle well. Shake it until the oil mixes well. Ensure that you shake the mixture again every time you use it.
