Eucalyptus Oil to keep away bugs from your home and your skin and more

Do you venture outside only to find yourself being carried away by mosquitos? Do you have a bug problem in your home?

I have found that Eucalyptus Oil can keep away many (not all) types of bugs from entering your home. Just put a few drops across your entries into your home. Also, a few drops around the perimeter of your home. You can also saturate a cotton ball and wipe around your windows and doors to help keep them away. If you really have a bug problem, try saturating severeal cotton balls and placing them under sinks, in closets and in other areas where the problem bugs are found.

 In addition, rubbing exposed areas on your body will keep away biting bugs (dilute with water as you do not want to put pure Eucalyptus oil on your skin). 1/4 cup of water to about 3-5 drops of Eucalyptus Oil should keep the bugs away.

Additional uses for Eucalyptus Oil is as follows:
Joint Pain
Nasal Stuffiness (Breathing in, do not drink or consume)
Genital Herpes

*Remember to dilute as the oil can be very strong and may irritate your skin if not diluted.*
