If you’ve been following me long then you know that essential oils are my passion!

As an aromatherapist I use essential oils in all areas of my life. And that includes gardening!

There are multiple ways that essential oils can be used in the garden. 

Now, you might be wondering how essential oils can help your garden. Before we start talking about which essential oils to use, let’s first discuss how essential oils work so that we can better understand how they can hep your garden.



Essential Oils for Plants



Essential oils are basically the cells of plants. The essential oils that I recommend in this article come from herbs and plants that bugs and diseases do not like, and that your vegetables do like. It is basically a concentrated version of the plant that it comes from.

For example, it takes approximately 40 rose petals to make 1 drop of rose essential oil! Now that is concentrated, is it not?!

So by spraying a mixture containing essential oils on your plants, produce, or the ground around them, you can eliminate those bugs, molds, and more!
