Living in a house with a garden and having two dogs means that we're almost always in the company of bugs and mosquitoes in the evening. This means the homemade bug spray gets used every day.
We ended up making our own bug spray for the same reason we make a lot of the other products, to avoid chemicals both on our body and the environment. It is also quite cheap to make and you can tweak the recipe to make it smell great for you!

- 60 ml rubbing alcohol
