Worked great in a homemade bug spray
My husband went camping over the weekend and he made a homemade bug spray with water, citronella, lavender and cedarwood and it worked really well and of course it isn't loaded with harmful chemicals. We chose to use citronella instead of bug away because bug away contains lemongrass which attracts bees. I know this from experience!

Perfect spot-on scent
I rub this on the sides of my planters on hot days when bugs start pissing off my plants, and all the gnats fly away. I also use this in my natural (skin/topical) bug spray, diluted with FCO. Other wise oils to consider in your topical bug spray: clove, rosemary, peppermint, thyme, and cedarwood. And arborvitae, but i don't think RMO carries that. But if they do that's baller. I just got mine from doterra (unfortunately). I hate their MLM scheme.

That being said, I love RMO! THEY PAY YOUR SHIPPING, which is REASONABLE considering how INSANELY EXPENSIVE these WONDERFULLY PURE lab-tested CLINICAL GRADE oils.

Love Rocky Mountain Oils and the free shipping. Just wish you all would add some of the things a particular oil is used for to the label for quick reference:) Hint, Hint:)
