Citronella essential oil is very annoying to insects, it does not kill them, but it has repellent properties.

An easy citronella spray we can make on our own has the following composition:


10drops Lavender essential oil

10drops citronella essential oil

20ml pure alcohol

240ml of purified water


Mix the ingredients in a flask and shake well.

We can spray our beloved friend after bath when he is completely dry.

We are protecting his eyes so that the spray does not go inside them.

Only citronella essential oil is enough for this recipe. The addition of other essential oils gives better results.

Caution! We use pure essential oils and not artificial flavors.

Adding a small amount of pure alcohol can help to solubilize the essential oils.

Store it in a cool, dark place when not in use.

GENERAL TIP: Shake well before use.
