The Essential Oils You Need To Eradicate Moths

Essential oils are known for their pleasant scents, alleviation of inflammation and nausea, as well as the many benefits they offer. According to WebMD, some users of essential oils claim to enjoy many of these advantages, including reduced stress, treatment of fungal infections, sleep assistance, and prevention of diseases. There's also a plethora of scents to choose from that provide different remedies, such as lavender oil, tea tree oil, Frankincense oil, peppermint oil, and more, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Some of these essential oils can also eliminate pesky insects, such as moths. Moths are typically most bothersome in the spring, but they can sometimes still spread out during the summer, according to MothPrevention. July is quickly approaching, and you may still be trying to figure out how to rid them from your home. Luckily, we've found some essential oils that will grant you freedom from those aggravating winged insects.

Moths won't stand a chance against these oils

Life with Lisa says the best essential oils to get rid of moths are oregano, lavender, cedar wood, peppermint, and patchouli — but oregano oil may be your best option. You may be confused about how you should use essential oils without drenching your home in them, but it's relatively simple. The first tactic is to drop a few drops of oil into a spray bottle. Then you'll fill the rest of the bottle with water to dilute the oil. After that, you can start spraying! However, be cautious using this around food unless the oils you use are safe for consumption.

You can also use a diffuser to spread the essential oils in the air, but be sure to place them in the area where you see moths the most. Lastly, you can use cotton balls by placing a few drops onto them. Once that's done, you can put them in drawers, closets, or cupboards to allow the scent to spread around.
