How To Keep Moths Out Of Your Home With Lavender Oil

Last week I published a blog post revealing how you can keep spiders out of your home with peppermint oil and it quickly became the most popular post on the blog EVER! Over 30,000 people have read that blog post in just one week and nearly 4,000 people have “liked” it on Facebook.

In the comments I got lots of questions about how to keep other little critters away, such as ants and centipedes, but the most common request was for a method to keep moths away.

So I consulted my go-to book (The Complete Book Of Aromatherapy & Essential Oils) and this is what it told me…

Moths do not like lavender oil. Simply placing a drop or two on a cotton ball and placing them around your window frames will keep them out. Alternatively you could add the essential oil to ribbons and hang them around your open windows. When the wind blows it will blow in a lovely lavender aroma.

For an even more potent blend, combine five drops of lavender oil and five drops of citronella oil and add one or two drops of the blend to the ribbon or cotton buds.

Alternatively you could add 10-15 drops of lavender oil mixed with water into a spray bottle and spray at their likely entry sources.

It’s as simple as that!

If you need to buy a bottle of lavender oil then take a look at this Plant Therapy Lavender Oil on Amazon.

Yet another wonderful way to use essential oils in place of harmful chemical filled products. What do you do to keep little critters out of your home?

If you’d like to learn more things you can do and ways you can use essential oils, then get a copy of The Complete Book Of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy. It has over 600 recipes for your health, beauty and home and is my absolute favorite book on the topic.
