- An empty spray can (better glass bottle)
- A glass of pure or boiled water
- Organic vegetable oils (You can choose one or more of the following)
- Citronella (lemon balm) essential oil
While your water is hot, add the baking soda and dissolve it thoroughly.
Drop your chosen oils into the water as to be 30-50 drops in total. Since they all have almost the same effect, you can adjust the amount to your liking. You don’t need to count drop by drop as there is no exact measurement.
Shake the bottle well and use it by spraying directly on your skin and spreading it well.
Be careful not to apply it around the eyes and mouth. In case some essential oils may cause an allergic effect on the skin, it will be useful to test your oil mixture on a small area first.
