I was out in my beautiful flower garden last night and the horse flies were buzzing around my head like CRAZY! I wasn't planning on being out for very long so I didn't put on my Citronella and Lemongrass Spray (usually that works well for all bugs). I got so annoyed by those loud buzzing buggers that I wanted to research what essential oils work best to repel them. Plus they bite and it hurts! The top essential oils that I found to repel flies = Lemongrass, Citronella, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Peppermint. I also wanted to share the Essential Oil List above to help you stay bug-free this summer.
What's your favorite essential oil to annoy the bugs?
