Thanks to Lynda @ Bloom Bake Create I am sharing a recipe for an all natural bug off spray This is really easy and made with stuff you probably have around the house. So let’s get started!


Lemon Balmenough to fill a quart jar, Lavender flowers - a cup or so, Apple cider vinegarenough to cover herbs, A glass jar,  An old knee high sockfor straining the liquid, A spray bottleto store finished product in.


Crush with fingers the fresh lemon balm and stuff into quart jar. Add lavender. Cover with apple cider vinegar. Shake or stir every day for 7 days.

Strain mixture through an old stocking into a jug  and pour into a spray bottle. Store in cool, dark place. Should be good for the season. Apply and reapply to skin and clothes as needed.
