Natural Bed Bug Spray

I am here in sunny Florida and I am enjoying my time! However prior to getting here I was in panic mode over the bed bug issue going on in several states, one including my own, NY.

I came a cross a recipe I found online and decided to make it and share it with you. I don't remember where I found it from however I will look again for it and give credit to the author.

All you need is 2 8 oz blue or amber glass spray bottles or you can do 4 4oz I also suggest using distilled or spring water vs. tap water.

Natural Bed Bug Spray
1 cup of distilled or spring water
10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
10 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
5 drops of Clove Essential Oil

Mix well and before each use shake the spray bottle.

This recipe smells divine for you bad bad for the bed bugs!!

Oh my I didn't realize I have been away from blog since the beginning of June! I am so very sorry that I have been a bad blogger!! I hope you can forgive me and know that I have been really busy and productive.

Let's see the first great thing to happen was I had received my first wholesale order from Greeny's Natural Market from Shelter Island NY. The owner Jen is fantastic and her market is just the cutest! I am proud to be on Greeny's shelves and look forward to our growing relationship.

The second has been my growing interest and love for herbs. I always was fascinated by herbs but was also intimidated by them. I took a 3 day course at the New York Open Center , with herbalist and Wise Woman Traditionalist Robin Rose Bennett. She was amazing and I left each class with a new found respect, love and admiration. I am hoping to take the online courses with Susan Weed who is based in Woodstock NY.

I just can't begin to explain the internal excitement I am feeling and experiencing. I feel like a kid in candy store when I order my herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs and I just want to order the whole website! LOL Silly I know but that is how I feel.

I will be on vacation next week and my plan is to plan for my new products and new website design. I know I am supposed to be on vacation but I feel like this will be the best time to be productive in the sun!

Until next time..be safe and be well!
