Repel Bugs with Pennyroyal Essential Oil

by FabulousFrannie

If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Pennyroyal essential oil and its many wonders.

Mentha pulegium is steam distilled to produce this fresh and minty-herbaceous oil. This middle note oil blends well with Citronella, Geranium, Lavender, Rosemary, and Sage.

A little goes a long way… That’s something to keep in mind when using Pennyroyal as it’s an extremely potent oil that must be used (and enjoyed) with caution. Add a drop to homemade insect repellent as it’s toxic to them and will help keep them away or even kill them. Citronella is another oil that’s beneficial in deterring bugs, so be sure to add it as well. Pennyroyal can also be used in a diffuser to act as a lung decongestant and ease anxious feelings. Combine with Lavender for extra soothing power.
