Using Essential Oils in Your Garden

Pesticides are among several chemicals in the environment that we inhale and they may cause us health problems. The good news is that there is another way to help repel pests minus the harm to your health – by using essential oils in your garden.

While essential oils are better known to be used in aromatherapy, they are also very effective insect repellents, not only for you, but also for your plants in the garden. As an insect repellent, essential oils can be used by just mixing some drops of an oil with water and putting it in a pistol grip squirt bottle. This recipe can help drive insects away without harming your plants, making it a great natural alternative to pesticides.
