Natural Mosquito Repellent Diffuser Blend Recipe

Summer is right around the corner, and you know what that means, right? Tons of bonfires, s’mores, and… mosquitos… Yep, those pesky buggers are on their way and they’re ready to take us down. Okay… maybe it isn’t that dramatic, but still! Every summer, I swear I have at least ten mosquito bites on me at any given moment. I must have super sweet blood or something. 😉

If you’re just as annoyed by these little blood-suckers as I am, I have the perfect diffuser recipe for you! You can diffuse this natural mosquito repellent in your bedroom at night, in your sunroom, near your back door, or anywhere where you could use a little bug-fighting boost!

Each of the essential oils in this blend has bug-deterring properties, so you’re sure to get the full mosquito-fighting power of each of them!

I love that this recipe gives me a leg up on those little buggers. These oils are great mosquito fighters and can help you have more peace of mind when you’re outside during the summer!
