DIY Essential Oil Sprays

My favorite of my homemade essential oil sprays has to be the hand sanitizer. I love the smell. I love the fact that it doesn't contain alcohol, so it doesn't burn your hands if you have any cuts. And it doesn't dry out your skin either.

***For all of the recipes below, I use a small (2.5 oz.) spray bottle. You can order a bag of 12 here.

Hand Sanitizer
10 drops doTerra On Guard essential oil
10 drops lemon essential oil
10 drops lime essential oil
1 T. sweet almond oil
2 oz. filtered water

This bug repellent is safe to use on even the tiniest babies since it's free of DEET. A must have during the summer months!

Bug Repellant
5 drops citronella essential oil
5 drops lemongrass essential oil
5 drops lemon essential oil
5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
5 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops orange essential oil
10 drops doTerra Terra Shield essential oil
2 oz. witch hazel

If for some chance you forgot to use your bug repellent, then this anti-itch spray is wonderful for bug bites!

Bug Bite/Anti-Itch
10 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops chamomile essential oil
10 drops lemongrass essential oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil
2 oz. sweet almond oil

And last of all, the boo boo spray. It's great for when your kids fall and get scraped up. You can reapply every hour, and it will disinfect (so no need for antibiotic ointments) and help the wound heal faster.

Boo Boo Spray
10 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil
5 drops lemon essential oil
2 oz. filtered water

I love these! I'm just wondering in the hand sanitizer, which component is the one that actually kills germs on your hands? I'd love to try it. I've been trying to clear my home of chemicals over the last year too, but I haven't gotten quite as far as you have making all my own things.
