DIY Bug Repellant

DIY Bug Repellant

So Fresh founder, Lauren Spicer lives in Panama. Her sis is way up North in Canada and yet they have similar problems with bugs; bugs love them! This bug repellent is made into an easy to apply cream. It ensures that you get an ample dose of repelling power. Plus, since it is all natural and smells heavenly you need not worry about having it all over your hands. 

The blend of essential oils is incredible. Plus a lot of these oils are easy enough to make yourself. If you would rather not purchase all of the necessary oils check out the So Fresh Mag DIY Essential Oils Guide here.
