Here are two things which we can be certain of: Gnats are annoying while Essential Oils are awesome. Fortunately, Essential Oils are known to be repel Gnats out of your home.
Although we can’t just pick just any essential oil to do the job. Here are a list of oils which you can utilize! (They smell great, too.)
What Are They?
While there are different types of essential oils intended for different bugs, Gnats are proven to be weak against Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Melaleuca, and Rosemary.
If you happen to have any one of these at home, you can go ahead and take it away and start mixing it up.
Do It Yourself Oils
Don’t worry, we’re not going to do rocket science with this one. It’s pretty simple to do, and you don’t need to have a lot of materials at your hand. Also, it’s only going to take you a couple of minutes to get everything settled.
Here’s what you need to get as soon as you can: a carrier oil and a combination of your ideal essential oils.
As for the carrier oil, I would always recommended going for sweet almond. Seriously, the smell is just FANTASTIC.
Or of course, you can go for avocado oil. Personally, I’d go for oils which aren’t too hard on the skin. And if it contains the lesser grease, the better.
After which, you need to do at least ten to twenty drops of Rosemary oil (or any of the oils I’ve mentioned above, they’re as good as effective for the task.)
Lastly, check out your drawers for a small bottle. If you don’t have any, even an old jar would do just fine.
Rub Them On Your Skin!
Once you have secured the old jar, go get a tablespoon as your means of measurement. The carrier oil should be as much as 2 tablespoons. Just like what I’ve stated above, ten to twenty drops is essential oil is enough.
So you can be free from gnats, mix it well. To ensure that the solution has already been well-combined, mix it up for a good minute. After that, you may slowly get the oil out and rub it on your skin.
This method is pretty good. Not only will your skin will be free from bugs, you’ll also be nourished. My favorite part? I don’t have to wear a perfume to smell good!
Spray Them Away!
You can always choose to spray them away. Get a 2 ounce jar and a tablespoon. Preferably, you should add in at least 1/12 tablespoon of water.
If possible, it should be distilled. Later on, add in 1 teaspoon of vodka. Unlike the measurement from before, the drops of essential oils should be 15-25.
Wrapping It Up
Essential oils are indeed a wonder. If you have problem with gnats and bugs, you can always check out your things at home before making any harsh decisions (which involves buying anything.)
In addition, they are pretty simple to make, too. You’ll be maximizing your time and effort this way
