Just in time for summer and spending time outdoors!
– Witch hazel – Distilled water – Tinted or opaque glass spray bottle — if you’re upcycling an old bottle, be sure to clean it thoroughly. – Funnel – Citronella essential oil – Lavender essential oil – Tea tree essential oil – Lemon eucalyptus essential oil – Label maker (optional, but always fun)
Combine water and witch hazel in the spray bottle using a 1:1 ratio. For example, my bottle is 4 ounces, so I used 2 ounces of distilled or boiled water and 2 ounces of witch hazel. Next add your essential oils. I generally eyeball the amounts I add to the bottle, but here’s a rough estimate for a 4 ounce bottle: – Citronella essential oil: 30 drops – Tea tree essential oil: 15 drops – Lavender essential oil: 15 drops – Lemon eucalyptus essential oil: 20 drops Once all of the ingredients have been added to the spray bottle, screw on the cap and shake well.
