Drive Bugs Away with Essential Oil Blends

Relaxing in your lawn or terrace garden can be counted among the most blissful experiences in today’s modern life. However, bugs in the garden area or lawn can prove to be deterrents in your relaxation and need to be wiped out from your house. In fact, some of us are bothered by bugs that are present indoors. Pests like cockroaches, flies, mosquitoes and some other rodents are a problem of every household. We suggest you to take an essential oil road map to solve this buggy issue. In this blog, we are going to tell you about some essential oil remedies that will keep bugs and pests away from your house.

Lavender, Germanium and Patchouli Blend To Keep the Bugs Away
Usually it is suggested to use strong odor essential oils like peppermint, lemon, citronella and eucalyptus to keep the bugs away. A blend of lavender, germanium and patchouli will provide you an effective and chemical-free way of keeping bugs at bay. Spray this blend in the areas where you think, pests are most likely to occur. You can also add this mixture in your home made bug spray and body oil to act as a bug repallent. 

Make a Peppermint and Eucalyptus Bug Spray
Take ¼ cup of dried peppermint and eucalyptus leaves each. Put them in a cup containing hazel extract and leave it for two weeks. Refrigerate the extract. Combine 2 ounces of this extract with hazel and 10 drops of lavender, germanium and patchouli blend. Put this mixture in a spray bottle. Shake it well. It is not harmful so you can even apply it on clothing or skin.    

Cosmetic pest control products available in the market are harmful in nature and should not be a part of your home ambiance. Not many people know that essential oils which are mostly believed to be therapeutic in nature can also prove to be effective bug deterrents. So, make a blend at home and ensure a bug-free home.
