DIY Oilternative – Natural Bee Repellent
Bees important to our ecosystem. Without bees, our human species would not survive.
As good as bees are for us and the environment, nobody wants to get stung. For some, a bee sting can cause a severe reaction. It’s best to keep bees at a safe distance without hurting them. A natural bee repellent is the perfect solution.
Off the shelf bee repellents contain chemicals which could be harmful to bees and the environment. Fortunately there is a natural DIY oilternative.
Essential oils are plant extracts which often act as insect repellents to protect the plant. Below is a super simple recipe that repels bees and other insects, is non-toxic but smells wonderful to humans!
DIY Insect Repellent Recipe
- 5 drops of Peppermint
- 10 ounce spray bottle filled half way with water
That’s it! Just spray in areas where you don’t want bees or insects. I spray my back porch.
Don’t have Peppermint? Substitute Eucalyptus or Citronella
