I don’t know about you, but I used harsh chemical fly sprays on my horses for YEARS! I even used to spray the chemicals directly on my hand so I could rub them on my horses face. I always knew it wasn’t good for me to be doing that, but I didn’t realize I had other options that actually WORKED! After having a horse who was allergic to most fly sprays I started making my own horse spray. Here is an easy recipe that I like to use even when the flies and bugs are at their worst!
DIY Fly Spray Recipe
*All Essential Oils Young Living 100% Pure Therapeutic Grade
2 1/2 Cups Distilled Water
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
8 Drops Purification Essential Oil
8 Drops Melrose Essential Oil
8 Drops Citronella Essential Oil
8 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
2 Tablespoons Thieves Household Cleaner or 1/4 Cup Witch Hazel
This is the recipe I prefer. Sometimes I add lemongrass to the mix and sometimes I leave out the Citronella because Purification already has citronella in it. It’s nice being able to skip the harsh chemicals and still have happy horses.
