July 2nd – Prepare to use safe (and natural) bug repellent while you are out watching fireworks on the 4th.

Nutritionally, it is said you can drink a tablespoon or two of organic apple cider vinegar and eat lots of garlic.  As well, Vitamin B1 is known to help repel bugs.

Some oils and herbs are know to work, you can look those up further for yourself.  I ran across the below recipe from TheDailyGreen.com as another option:

  • 10-25 drops essential oil such as lavender, rose geranium (for ticks), coriander seeds, peppermint, cajeput and citronella
  • 2 T vegetable oil
  • 1 T aloe vera gel (optional)
  • Combine ingredients in jar, stir to blend, dab on skin or clothing

If you want to buy one, always great to check out a product through EWG.org to see it’s safety rating.

  1. Amy…I think your bug repellent will definitely work…from a good Italian’s love of garlic, too much garlic will keep your besties away too…just a little Italiano heads up! ❤ gg
