In a group I help run I posted about a natural bug (and arachnid) repellent I was making for our porch and patio today. It was essentially half my essential oils and a stick of cinnamon I soaked in a half and half vinegar/water mix. There are many different oils and herbs one could procure to help ward off a variety of bugs without chemicals.
Some of these include:
*Mint (any kind)
*Citrus – Lemon, Lime, Orange, Grapefruit, etc.
I usually do a mix of what I have on hand to ward off different types of bugs but if you have a specific pest you can easily find specific herb/s for them.
After I have made my repellent I either add a cup to a gallon of water and wash the porch with it or I put it…
