There are plenty of natural bug sprays but few actually work. The Wooden Spoon Herbs Buggin' Out Bug Spray is one of those few. Using a blend of witch hazel, raw apple cider vinegar, and lavender hydrosol, the DEET-free mist wards off mosquitoes, gnats, and ticks without the chemical-filled fog, while its blend of essential oils leaves behind a pleasant aroma.
St. Patrick's day is this weekend, so you might want to go ahead and pick up some of the Hangover Tonic from Wooden Spoon Herbs.
