How Does Lavender Repel Wasps?

Five Spot Green Living

Do you get nervous when you see wasps flying around your yard or garden?

I love adding lavender to my herb garden and if it helps keep away those wasps it’s a bonus!

Lavender is arguably the most popular essential oil and it actually works great as an insect repellent!

A study has shown that its insect repelling properties are comparable to those of DEET, a very strong and dangerous pesticide.

Lavender keeps so many bugs away like fleas, fruit flies, wasps, and even bed bugs.

It is gentle, moisturizing, has mood balancing properties, so truly it is one of the most versatile and all-around beneficial essential oils that also happens to be a great insect repellent.
