I found all these projects that would make such great DIYs for summer that I had to share them with you! Even if you don’t consider yourself the craftiest person in the world, these DIYs will come in super handy while you’re getting through the remainder of summer! Let’s get started!

1. Mosquito REPELLENT Spray

(Your reaction) Thank you!

One of the smartest DIYs for summer I’ve come across is a mosquito repellent spray. Mosquitoes are honestly one of my least favorite things about warm weather, so making this is a great idea! Even if you don’t need it, I bet you have friends or family that would love a bottle of it. It’s also good to keep the recipe handy in case you take a camping trip in the future. No need to buy a bunch of store-bought chemicals when you can make your own more natural concoction at home!
Essential oils: choose from Citronella, Clove, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Cajeput, Eucalyptus, Cedar, Catnip, Lavender, Mint
Natural Witch Hazel
Distilled or boiled Water
Vegetable glycerin (optional)
Fill spray bottle (I used 8 ounce) 1/2 full with distilled or boiled water

Add witch hazel to fill almost to the top

Add 1/2 tsp vegetable glycerin if using

Add 30-50 drops of essential oils to desired scent. The more oils you use, the stronger the spray will be. My personal favorite mix is: Rosemary, Clove, Cajeput, Lavender, Cinnamon and Eucalyptus… it works great and smells good too! Check wellnessmama.com for other bug spray recipes, also!
