USING OILS FOR NATURAL REPELLANT
You can make sprays by adding 8-12 drops of essential oil to a gallon of water and spray onto plants.
Peppermint oil is an excellent natural bug repellent for aphids, squash bugs, white flies, ants, beetles, spiders, and fleas.
Lemongrass can repel flying and crawling pest without harming plants.
Rosemary oil is a potent repellent for many types of insects including flies, fleas and mosquitoes. Rosemary is also great for deterring insect larvae that can easily destroy entire crops of tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, and even some root veggies if left undisturbed.
Clove and thyme work well together for flying and biting insects like chiggers, ticks, roaches, and flies.
2) USING OILS FOR ATTRACTING
Essential oils aren’t just for repelling unwanted creatures from your garden. You can also use certain essential oils to attract pollinators to your garden. Wild orange is an irresistible attractant for bees! You can also use lavender, fennel, helichrysum and sage essential oils to attract more butterflies to your garden.
3) USING OILS FOR THE GARDENER
While in the garden you may experience some insect bites on yourself. For this try using frankincense, lavender, and melaleuca. These oils are great for the skin and with their powerful properties can help with bug bites and stings. To learn more about these oils click here:
After a long day of digging, planting, or weeding you may experience soreness. Try the soothing blend! Watch my video about this blend here: Other oils good for muscle aches and pains are rosemary, wintergreen, marjoram, and cypress.
You can use a mixture of 5 drops of peppermint oil in spray bottle with water to spray on the body to keep cool and soothe sunburn skin.
4) USING OILS FOR PREDATORS
If you have predators trying to get your vegetables try using rosemary and black pepper! Add 10 drops of each oil to a container of water and soak string in it. Tie around plants that are being tampered with or around the perimeter of the garden.
