Whether we're watching little league games, camping or taking the kids to the park, we spend plenty of time outside in the summer. While sunshine and blue skies are fun, painful and itchy bug bites are not.

This easy two-ingredient bug spray is perfect to take on outdoor excursions to keep the bugs at bay without harmful, smelly chemicals!

Bug Off!  Mist Spray


Add all ingredients to a 4 ounce spray bottle (get the RMO bottle here). Shake well before every use. Apply to areas where you are likely to get bit.

For Pets:

If you're using this recipe on pets, only use 10-15 drops of Bug Off! instead of 75.

    I don't purchase anything for which ingredients are not disclosed.

    Will this keep ticks away from people and animals? We are already having a problem with ticks in Mi. and they will only get worse.

      Oh boy! This can be a big problem this time of year. We do not have specific information on how effective Bug Off! is on Ticks. However, we will suggest using witch hazel or alcohol in the DIY bug spray as ticks tend to not like either one. We wish you luck stay tick free!

    I thought peppermint, lemon and eucalyptus were no no's for pets. I'm so confused! Everyone says different things!?

      It is not always easy to navigate through information about essential oils and pets. Especially as it can vary from the type of pet and body mass. We recommend the following books to gain information about essential oil use and pets.
