Natural Protection All Summer Long
With so much talk today about mosquito born diseases like the Zika Virus, Dengue Fever and the West Nile Virus, it's easy to fall into the trap of fear based reaction when choosing how to protect your family this summer. At Soulful Essence, we want to make it as easy as possible for you and your family to enjoy a safe, happy and healthy summer that's not only good for you, but good for the planet too.
So we decided to put together a quick, fun and easy mosquito repellent recipe that is completely chemical free and all natural.
Here's how you make it:
In a 2 oz spray bottle combine the following ingredients:
- 2 oz of Grapeseed oil
- 60 drops of Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil
- 40 drops of Citronella essential oil
- 20 drops of Rosemary essential oil
- Shake to combine thoroughly
We hope you enjoy the formula. Use it while you spend some quality time with your family this summer!
This formula is great because it's sweat and water resistant. Try to reapply every 2-3 hours and be sure to avoid contact with eyes. Parents should apply to children's face and be sure to avoid contact with kid's hands. Do not use on children 3 years old or younger. Of course, If irritation occurs, be sure to discontinue use immediately. Also, be sure to ask your doctor before use if you have a medical condition or if you are pregnant or nursing. Enjoy!
