The first step is to boil one cup of distilled water for the spray and add three to four tablespoons of dried herbs in the boiled water. Ideally add one tablespoon of each herb or some of the above mentioned herbs in the boiled water. It’s also not a bad idea to add a couple of dried cloves to the water along with the herbs. Mix the solution well.

Once the herbs have been added, leave the solution in a container that has a lid on it. Let the solution cool down. Covering the solution is important as it will keep the fumes of the herbs inside the solution and the solution will not be losing its fragrance.

Mix with Rubbing Alcohol
The next step is to drain out the herbs from the solution and add the solution to one cup of rubbing alcohol or witch hazel. Store the solution in a cool place in a bottle. Keeping it in a fridge will also not be a bad idea.

Use When Needed
You can use the solution whenever you are going outside.The best part with this solution is that it smells great and is also good for your skin unlike those chemical based bug sprays that damage both skin and your health in general. It is also inexpensive compared to the ones commercially available.
