Repel flies naturally with lemon & cloves table bowls

Lemon and cloves table bowls are a natural way to repel flies so you can enjoy your outdoor meals.

Depending on how big your outdoor dining table is, you will need 2-3 lemons cut in half.

Then, slice a thin layer off the bottom of each lemon half so they sit flat, and place each half in a small decorative bowl or saucer plate. Make sure you use sealed ceramic or glass.

Next, stick 20 clove buds into each lemon half, and then sprinkle 8 drops of Immune Guard essential oil over the cloves.

Place your lemon and infused clove bowls at intervals along your dining table about 15 minutes before you sit down to eat to allow the scents to get to work.

Repel flies naturally with Immune Guard

Immune Guard essential oil not only guards against airborne germs and bacteria, but the ingredients also make a great natural fly repellent.

Immune Guard combines lemon myrtle with menthol tones of peppermint, woodsy eucalyptus, rosemary and warm spicy notes of cinnamon and cloves. Flies don’t like it – and you can eat in peace without having to wave them away constantly.

Repel flies naturally with your diffuser

You can also use your diffuser indoors to repel flies using Immune Guard.

There are all kinds of essential oil diffusers. However, coldwater ultrasonic diffusion is considered safe and effective.

Ultrasonic diffusers come in different sizes, and it’s best to follow the manufacturer’s directions. 

As a general rule though, if you have a 100ml diffuser, use 3-5 drops of essential oils. For a 150ml diffuser, use 8-10 drops. A large 500ml diffuser requires about 15-20 drops of essential oils.

how long you should diffuse

You don’t need to diffuse essential oils all day long. They are powerful, and you don’t want to overpower a room either. 

It’s recommended that you diffuse essential oils for an hour and turn your diffuser off for an hour.

Make sure you have good ventilation too.

health notes

If you suffer from allergies, you’re pregnant, or you take prescribed medications that are sensitive to interactions, please check with your health practitioner before using essential oils.

Essential oils can be toxic to animals. Please check with your vet before using essential oils near your pets.
