Since adding essential oils into my everyday life I am always looking for ways to use them. I have done quite a bit of research on the effectiveness of essential oils as a pest repellent. One of the most important things to know is:
DO NOT USE ESSENTIAL OILS ON CHILDREN OR PETS UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THEY ARE SAFE!
Essential oils can be very powerful and what is safe for use on adults is not necessarily safe for children or pets. As a matter of fact, it is always a good idea to use a carrier oil even in adult applications and to always test a small area of skin before applying topically or inhaling.
