Recipe for homemade antiseptic spray & anti-bug spray

Antiseptic Spray

Ingredients:

15 ml of calendula infused oil (usually jojoba oil)

15 drops of teatree or manuka essential oil (strong antibacterial)

15 drops of lavender essential oil (antibacterial and painkiller)

12 drops of cypress essential oil (stop bleeding)

Mix together and keep in a colored glass container. I use this mixture when I got a really deep cut on my shin hours before my hiking trip to the Alps. Not only this has helped my wound to heal fast and nicely, I experienced almost no pains on the cut the whole time. I suspect the calming effect of the lavender really helped.

Anti bug spray

Ingredients:

30 ml of purified water

2 tablespoon of vodka

30-40 drops of mixture of the following essential oils: rosemary, clove, lavender, lemongrass, geranium, peppermint and eucalyptus

Mix everything and pour inside a spray bottle. Keep in refrigerator.

This is also a refreshing spray which freshens me up before any runs.
