During the summer months it gets hot where we live, which makes the bugs way worse. I always end up with several bug bites from mosquitoes and other insects. A friend of mine told me that she has had luck using essential oils. She said the citronella essential oil is the best thing to use for bug bites. I asked her where she got it from and she said her friend sells essential oils. I then asked her how much it costs and she told me. It seemed a little expensive to me. I wanted to learn more about citronella essential oil before I paid that kind of money for it.
I started looking online for information about this oil. I found the website of the brand she got hers from. I also found other places that were selling this oil and it was cheaper. I decided to order the cheaper one. It cost less than half the price of the company she got hers from.
I got my oil in the mail and was anxious to try it out to see if it would work. I told my friend I got it from an online store and she said it’s probably not the same and won’t work as well.
I tried it that evening while I was outside with my family. I didn’t have any problems with any bugs biting me. I think it worked and I told my friend that. She said that it may have because of the scent but that I should really order through a company like she got hers from because it’s certified. I read reviews online that said that it really didn’t matter and they were all the same. I told her I will stick with this one.
