DIY Pest Control

DIY Pest Control

Warmer days mean summer is just around the corner! That means beach days, extra family time, and unfortunately, it also means an increase in the insect population! As many of us have experienced, as temperatures rise, bugs become more active. While that can cause many to reach for an off-the-shelf bug spray, today we want to share a natural alternative you can use instead! 

Ingredients

  • 1.5 ounces water
  • 10 drops Cassia doTERRA oil
  • 10 drops Cinnamon doTERRA oil
  • 10 drops Peppermint doTERRA oil
  • 10 drops Protective Blend doTERRA oil 
As you can see, this DIY essential oil spray is simple to make and involves only 5 ingredients! Combine all 5 into a small glass spray bottle, mix, shake, and you’re ready to spray. 

Why Use Natural Pest Control?

Typical cleaning or pest control products may include a variety of risks. For example, they can cause individuals to inhale primary or secondary air pollutants, some of which can be classified as toxic or hazardous. (Atmospheric Environment, 2004) Such exposure to toxic chemicals can negatively affect the health of the respiratory and/or other body systems. In contrast, an all-natural bug spray composed of only therapeutic-grade doTERRA essential oils is 100% pure. It includes only oils extracted from natural plants. Therefore, our bodies can recognize such substances and any interaction will occur in a seamless manner.
