Homemade Bug Repellent Bars

One of my blog’s most visited summertime posts is this terrific Best Essential Oil Mosquito and Bug Repellent Recipes post. I (finally) decided (three years later!) to add a homemade insect repellent bar “recipe”. You can wash with this and have some protection against summertime mosquitoes and bugs even if you forget to apply a homemade bug spray.

Note: (and big disclaimer) not all bug repellents (sprays, bars, wipes) commercial or homemade work for everyone. What works for me may not work for thee, and vice versa. Even if you use this bug repellent bar and find it helps ward off those flying pests for you, you are still going to be better off using it as a first layer defense, and continue to use a homemade bug spray when those buggers are biting.

Note: (and a second big disclaimer) This Homemade Bug Repellent Bars recipe should be safe for children. However, I cannot guarantee anything so your best bet is to consult your child’s pediatrician and ask for medical advice.

With that in mind, let’s make some bug repellent bars!

• 10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
• 10 drops Rosemary Essential Oil

You may want to increase your essential oil drops by up to 5 more (so 15 instead of 10, 20 instead of 15). A lot of this is personalized by reactions to oils, and the reaction (good and bad) to the scent of the oils.

I recommend storing in a plastic or metal container with a lid. We keep ours in the fridge until we are ready to use them. They will get soft if kept in warm temperatures for an extended period of time!

• Add 3-4 drops of lemon essential oil and 8+ yellow soap dye to the soap base. The essential oil has a strong scent, but add more drops if you like a really lemony scent.

Tip: I like to allow my soap to harden so I keep them unwrapped on a shelf in the linen closet. The closet smells pretty good too! The scent will dissipate this way, so add more Lemon Essential Oil if you plan to store your soap open on wire racks (shelving).

Note: None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor and do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions about using essential oils or making your own soap so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about essential oils and making your own soap.
