Organic, Safe Bug Spray
What you Need:

1 - 32 oz spray bottle
10 - 20 drops of Tee Tree oil
10 - 20 drops of Citronella oil
1/2 teaspoon of dried cloves


Fill the spray bottle with water and add the other ingredients. Shake well before each use.

It may be sprayed directly on most plants to repel insects. Works well on aphids, white flies, mealy bugs, spider mites and other plant pests. It can also be used as a natural insect repellent for yourself.

I spray our plants each fall before bringing them in to ensure I am not bringing unnecessary guests into the house.


You can also add a bit of peppermint oil to increase its efficacy and improve its fragrance.
