Healing Arts and Pagan Studies – Use Your Socks to Repel Bugs
For a safe alternative to potentially harmful insecticides, place
three drops of peppermint, citronella, or eucalyptus essential oil on
your socks. Mosquitoes and other bugs hate the smell of these oils.
Don’t apply essential oils to your favorite socks, as they can
stain. Some EO’s may cause skin irritation, so avoid direct
contact. Reapply the EO every two to three hours.
