5 DIY Bug Sprays and Tick Repellent


My son went off to camp today so last night I made up some homemade bug spray. There are lots of recipes on the Internet. This one below is specifically for ticks. Geranium is safe for both kids and dogs. You can place one drop of geranium oil on your dog's collar or shoulder blades to repel ticks (do not use the spray). See this article here for more info on Geranium oil.
