Oh I am so dang excited for summer, are you!? I love having the kids home and less schedules to follow. We spend a lot of our time outdoors in the summer, by the pool, at the beach, hiking, camping… Anything to soak up that sun and fresh air. But what I don’t like about the summer is the bugs that come with it. I’ve got a great diy outdoor summer spray for you to try!
This contains citronella which is a natural insect repellant, plus with the addition of lemongrass and peppermint, it just makes it that much better!
You can us this spray to freshen up outdoor furniture, sleeping bags and use as a personal body spray.
