Essential Oils for the Potting Bench
I've been eyeing my potting bench stacked high with empty pots, itching to get organized! Part of my Spring routine includes stocking up on a few key EOs believe it or not. Not only are pure essential oils amazing tools for wellness, great in the laundry and super for all those DIY cleaners we love, they're perfect for treating plant maladies like fungus and repelling pests...organically.
If you're lucky enough to have a potting bench, you're lucky enough!
FLYING PEST CONTROL
Controlling flying pests in the home or the backyard/barnyard can make or break a good BBQ. Flies and wasps are the enemy when it comes to enjoying the great outdoors in warm weather. One of my favorite tricks and tips is to diffuse Peppermint near any door that people are coming in or out of. It actually acts as an invisible curtain to keep flies out of the house. Peppermint is of course a natural insect (and Bart) repellent plus it smells good.
