CYPRESS Essential Oil works great at deterring unwanted guests. No, we don’t mean family or friends. We’re talking about truly unwanted pests that ruin outdoor activities or even take up residence in your home. Ants, spiders, flies, etc. can be pesky and difficult to get rid of once in your home. It’s become commonplace to use chemicals and pesticides to rid them from your domicile - but you, your family and your pets are then exposed to those same chemicals. And if it kills pests, it can’t be great for you to be exposed to them either!
Here are a couple of recipes to help detour those unwanted guests before they decide to invite themselves to your outing or home!
