Natural fly spray – using essential oils

All the flies around in the summer heat has me reaching for a DIY natural fly spray! Here’s what you need:

1/2 cup witch hazel.
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar.
30-50 drops of essential oils. 
Choose any combination of citronella, clove, lemongrass, rosemary, tea tree, eucalyptus, lavender and mint.

I chose to use the following oils in mine and 10 drops of each: citronella, lavender, tea tree, and easy air (which has a blend of rosemary, clove, eucalyptus, lemon and peppermint).

Within a few minutes of spraying it the the room had gone from heaps of flies buzzing around to only 2 that had landed and were sitting a bit stunned! SUCCESS!
