- spray

It works both indoors and outdoors. Convenient when you want to eat quietly on the terrace!

Additional advice

Be careful not to spray this fly repellent over furniture, fragile fabrics or pet beds, as the essential oils are greasy. Also avoid heat sources.

Flies hate smells of mint, basil, eucalyptus, lemongrass or lavender.

So you can vary or mix these oils in your spray. The important thing is that the flies don't get used to a particular smell.

In addition, this DIY organic repellent also repels gnats and mosquitoes.

Why does it work?

The mixture of alcohol and essential oils smells very strong and naturally repels flies.

The essential oils listed come from plants that flies hate in the garden in their natural state.

This is why it is recommended to put these plants near the house to protect against insects.
