All Natural Bug Spray Recipe

I'm one of those people who mosquitoes seem to love - but their bites don't love me! I get huge, red bumps that drive me insane.
I don't want to cover myself in toxic bug repellent so I took matters into my own hands. Here is my all natural bug spray recipe - it works wonders!
4 drops citronella essential oil

4 drops lemongrass essential oil

4 drops rosemary essential oil

4 drops eucalyptus essential oil

4 drops mint essential oil

1/4 cup pure witch hazel

Add all ingredients into a small glass or plastic atomizer. Shake well and apply liberally.
If you do end up getting a bite, you can find my recipe for a mosquito bite remedy here (PS: You will thank me for this one. It really works!).
I also have a list of mosquito repelling plants here
