Bug Proof Hiking Boots and Socks

 

Leather boots to tennies, field to stream get yourself some extra protection from those bugs hanging out in the grass, sage and hayfield. Everyone, from trailblazers to farmers need to be aware of ticks and mosquitos.  Have you ever thought of spraying down your shoes, socks and pant legs for extra protection?  Here's some ideas for you to try this summer, a conditioning application if your boots happen to be leather as well as an application for synthetic materials that will work well on exposed socks and skin too!

Leather Boot Spray {reapply as needed}

15 drops Citronella

15 drops Eucalyptus

1 ounce (30 ml) Neat Oil leather conditioner OR solid coconut oil

Blend oils and rub into leather, let sit for 10 minutes then buff off. Sock & Synthetic Boot Spray {reapply as needed} 15 drops Citronella 15 drops Eucalyptus 1-ounce water or, alcohol-free witch hazel (it's very nice to your skin) 1/2 teaspoon sea salt to emulsify the ingredients Shake bottle well, spray, wait 10 minutes, wipe off.  Be sure to spray socks if they're exposed and of course, any exposed skin above those socks!

Hello Camp Wander,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you. I appreciate your knowledge and sense of humor. I also appreciate the fact that the explanation for the ‘why’ and ‘wherefore’ of things is not so long and drawn out or too technical. It is the perfect amount of needed info. Thanks again.

Where do I get these ingredients? I would like to try some of your remedies but I don’t know where to start.

Great info! Thanks for sharing. Just want to add that you can use Citronella and Eucalyptus in your home too to ward off bugs and pests and keep the indoors smelling great.
