Now that it’s May, I THINK the weather has finally stopped changing its mind and it’s warmer for good and you know what that means… B U G S
So you’re sitting outside LOVING the weather and then BZZZZT. Here come the bugs! 🐝 No one likes getting bitten by mosquitoes. They’re a nuisance and their bites can be itchy and extremely irritating–enough to ruin any outdoor barbecue or picnic.
Before you reach for your go-to bug spray, read this – Most insect repellents out there are loaded with toxic chemicals, including the pesticide DEET, which is so poisonous that even the Environmental Protection Agency says you should wash it off your skin when you return indoors, avoid breathing it in and not spray it directly on your face. Think about it–if this chemical can kill mosquitoes, it can likely do some harm to other life forms too. 😳😱
Um, no thanks! I’ll stick with Citronella Essential Oil and DIY spray! This DIY Spray is SO easy to make and is healthier for you! #toxinfree
