It’s bug season! We put together this helpful chart with the many effective plant oils categorized by the particular bug they repel. This is not a complete list of ALL EO oils – feel free to weigh in with your fave EOs in the comments! A word of caution when using essential oils: they should always be used with a carrier product because of their volatility. Carrier products are other oils such as extra virgin olive oil, sunflower oil, apricot kernel oil, unscented lotions, etc. Some EOs should not be applied to children or to pregnant women so, as always, please do additional research. We also recommend seeking out brands who use sustainable harvesting practices. @MountainRoseHerbs has a good selection of essential oils, which we recommend! .

Here’s a simple recipe from the blog for crafting a bug repellent: .
