Get Rid of Pesky Bugs This Spring
Spring time is here, and it’s the perfect time to go outside! We know that with the sun shining and the skies being blue, you’re likely to spend more time exploring the great outdoors. However, we must also be mindful that we aren’t the only ones out there. Having fun in the sun means you’ll be sweating (who doesn’t!?) in the heat, so you’ll need ways to smell good and fresh, but you’ll also need to keep our friendly neighbours (bugs bugs bugs!) at bay.
1. Load up on fresh scents.
Scent is a powerful bug repellent. There’s some scents that can aid in repelling bugs, and putting them on your body can be a good way to stay smelling good and keep some bugs away. Our Gardeners’ collection features notes of lavender and lemon in our especially crafted formula, and boasts a lively floral scent to boot. Spread some of our Gardeners Collection lotion on your body to be nourished by aloe and avocado oils, or spray some our Gardeners Body Mist into your space. Want to keep the scent going all day long, and benefit from the freedom of those pesky insects? Add a few drops of our especially made Gardeners Essential Oil into your diffuser, then sit back and relax.
2. Encourage repellant with essential oils and make your own blend!
To start, you’ll need a carrier oil to dissolve the oils if you plan on placing it on any skin. We recommend the rosehip oil from our beauty oil collection, because rosehip rejuvenates the skin and moisturizes thoroughly. Next, put in your favourite essential oils – but don’t skip out on lavender, lemon, and eucalyptus. If you’re looking for essential oils to create your own blend, check our 100% pure essential oil collection here.
3. Soothe itchy bug bites naturally.
Sometimes, no matter what we do, we’ll come home with a few bug bites. Don’t worry, and don’t scratch! You can soothe itchy bug bites without harmful chemicals by using essential oils. Again, using a carrier oil – you can use our Tee Tree Oil because it reduces scarring and redness – you can rub some essential oil onto your bug bites. We recommend using peppermint because the minty punch will reduce the urge to scratch, and rosemary because it can be used as an anti-inflammatory.
