INSECT REPELLENT ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND
Generally, essential oils repel insects like ants, due to disrupting their pheromone trail. We have selected 4 of the best and most proven essential oils in repelling bugs and insects; Basil, Citronella, Clove Bud, and Lemongrass, to make this handmade blend. We recommend mixing this blend with a carrier oil like olive oil, or water, if making a surface bug spray, or simply popping it in an oil burner to deter flying pests from your room.
Basil (Ocimum Canum): Studies suggest Basil oil can serve as a substitute for some synthetic insecticides. This oil with a strong, fresh, and herby aroma has been tested and claims to have a repellent activity towards mosquitoes.
Citronella (Cymbopogon Nardus): A well known mosquito repellent, Citronella essential oil has a sharp citrus and lemongrass aroma. This essential oil has been claimed to be as effective as DEET, but as it evaporates quickly it is only effective for a shorter amount of time. Please use this oil with caution as it can cause skin irritation.
Clove Bud (Eugenia Caryophyllata): Alongside Citronella, studies suggest that Clove Bud essential oil had the best effectiveness at deterring mosquito bites. This oil has a strong, warm and spicy scent.
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Flexuosus): This essential oil with a refreshingly strong and sweet aroma is also a well known and effective mosquito repellent. This oil is also effective against flies.
This blend consists of 100% pure essential oils and should be diluted before application to skin. Please always perform at patch test before use.
