天然臭虫驱除DIY!

对我而言,夏天只有几个缺点,但在顶部(纳什维尔的湿度水平旁边)是我们在院子里遇到的夏天虫子。除了我们在我们的房子里似乎更糟糕的超级讨厌的蚊子外,我们还会遇到更多的壁虱,在树林旁边,在树林旁边 - 因为它们可以携带莱姆病以及其他疾病。I’ve wanted to try an essential oil-based bug repellent so we could repel the ticks naturally without the potentially harmful DEET product that is in a lot of bug sprays, and I wanted to make a kid’s version for our toddler that doesn’t have eucalyptus or peppermint in it (we don’t recommend eucalyptus under the age of 10 and peppermint under the age of 6) since all the store brands I’ve seen (including the kid’s brands) have one or both of those.

值得庆幸的是,有一些精油摧毁了蚊子和蜱虫,所以你可以用它们来为一个或另一个或者像我们所需要的一样的双重责任。我做了一个单独的稀释率,并为孩子的漏洞混合,但如果你想做一个,你也可以在成年人上使用孩子的版本。

成人混合(15岁及以上):

10滴柠檬精油
10滴柠檬草精油
8滴薰衣草精油
8滴桉树精油
1.5盎司(减去一茶匙为瓶子的精油腾出空间)蒸馏水
.5盎司95%葡萄酒酒精*

*谷物醇用作防腐剂以及油的载体,但也可以使用产品像这样如果您宁愿然后用水填充其余的水以填充2盎司的喷雾瓶,而不是在1:4比例(1滴精油至4滴溶剂素)的谷物醇(1滴至4滴溶剂)。

将谷物酒精(或索尔豆)添加到您的身上2盎司喷雾瓶并落入你的精油。旋转以结合并加入瓶子上的盖子。让油在醇中分散约一小时,然后加入蒸馏水,再次旋转以结合。

While there can be concern about citrus oils on the skin when exposed to sunlight, lemongrass isn’t a photosensitive oil and if lemon essential oil is steam-distilled rather than cold-pressed (ours is cold-pressed) it can be used on the skin. So just make sure to note which one your lemon oil is and only spray on clothes if you don’t have a skin-safe lemon oil (which is an application method a lot of people prefer anyway if they are more sensitive to oils). I love that I can make my own bug repellent that’s natural and is also something I can whip up a new batch of at home whenever we are out. I know our bug friends will be visiting us the rest of summer and into fall, so I’m glad we have a defense against them now! xo.劳拉
