Recipe: Homemade All-Natural Insect Repellant
While you can find this in the store, it is often synthetic or contains some other, not-so-natural ingredients. It is easy to make and just as effective, provided you use the proper ingredients. Just be sure to purchase Lemon Eucalyptus Oil and not a combination of lemon and eucalyptus oils!
- 25 Drops Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- 4 Ounces of Rubbing Alcohol or Witch Hazel
- 1 Tsp. Real Vanilla Extract
- 2 Ounces of Coconut Oil (optional)
- Mix all ingredients together and store in a small, leak-proof spray bottle.
- Shake well before use
- Spray all over clothes and exposed skin (oil can stain)
- Be careful not to get in eyes
- Reapply every 4-6 hours, as needed.
Considering the alternative DEET is highly toxic, and this is just as effective, if not more so, what would you rather spray on yourselves and your children? Share this information with your friends and family!

Ok, so; we’ve been traveling a lot; spent some time in Dominican Republic (la isla del sol) and then Argentina. Both places we travel around enjoying whatever each place had to offer. While in Dominican Republic we were able to do a workshop / course of a weekend in Rancho Baiguate, Jarabacoa where we learned some natural method to build clay house using the technique called “Quincha”. We got to know very cool group who i get to know more and more thru social media.
Then, since this workshop was such a success for us, we decide to do the 21 day course in La Patagonia Argentina with el maestro del barro “Jorge Belanko”. What a great experience. It was so awesome to get to know all these people with such good stories. Very grounded in terms of living, recognizing what is really important, to live, healthy, happy and simple aroud of people with same interest.
The exact location of the course is called “El Hoyo de Epuyen”. Very nice little town with a huge variety of fine fruits growing wild, like blackberries, pear, apples, plums, walnut trees, ext. During the night is really cold even in summer experiencing temperatures during the day as hot as 85-95F and nights as low as 35-55F. Crazy!
I’ll continue to write more, let see if this time i get motivated enough to post more! Having troubles uploading pictures so it bot that cook without pictures!
