  1. So, I have the essential oils, lavender and peppermint. Do i still have to add the witch hazel to make it effective , and can i just put it in my spray bottle?

    • You don’t have to add the witch hazel if your body can handle them neat, but it helps with spreading out the application of the oils, and you’ll use less oils too.

  2. Hi. Will having lavender and peppermint plants around the house keep flies away? I seem to have a neat influx ôf flies lately.

    • They can to a certain extent. I’ve found essential oils to work better because they’re more concentrated. Another good one for flies is citronella. I’ve been spraying our horses every day with it because the bugs are so bad right now. Hope this helps!
