Essential Oils alternative to using moth balls

Its been in the news lately, plenty of discussions around the dangers of  Moth Balls to children. So, why not use an alternative method to keeping the creepy-crawlies away! We asked our aromatherapist, Julie - who makes our beautiful skincare range - and she has provided the below very helpful information. I am definately going to use this in my home!

The Essential Oils that creepy-crawlies hate are –
Lavender, Citronella, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Cinnamon & Basil.

How to use:
  • Drip a couple of drops of Essential Oil onto a cotton ball and place in drawers or cupboards, refreshening every so often, or
  • you can also hang strips of ribbon in your cupboard with a drop of Essential Oil on it, (being careful not to get on clothes).
This is a great deterrent !  And has an added bonus of smelling beautiful for us.
