We have received numerous questions about our scents, and how they can be used. On these pages we will add Questions and our Answers as they come in. There are many, many ways to use fragrance oils - not just candle and soap making. If you have a Question, or maybe a new way to use our scents, please use the Ask A Question Link

There are many uses for our scenting oils besides candle and soap making. Before we get into those let us give you a word of caution in using our scenting oils, or anyone else's. Do Not use internally. Not For Human, or Animal consumption. Keep out of reach of children or those not able to understand the proper use of scenting oils. Do Not apply directly to skin, although we carry a supply of perfume scents, they are not to be used as perfume and may cause an allergic reaction when rubbed into the skin, or get into the eyes.Oils can stain fabrics and can damage wood, plastic, and painted surfaces. Some fragrances can be irritating to eyes and skin. Sensitivities vary from person to person.

  • Can I really use Scent It Scents to repel bugs?

    Oh, yes! There are some aromas that certain insects and pests just cannot stand:

    To deter a large variety of bugs-use Marigold.

    Ants- Cucumber, Clove, Cinnamon.

    For Sugar Ants-Peppermint or Cinnamon. Place the scent on a cotton ball and put where they are coming into the house.

    Flying insects in the house- the aroma of Basil will repel anything with wings. Flies, Mosquitoes, etc.

    Mosquitoes- Lavender or Citronella, will rid your home of mosquitoes.

    Fleas- hate the smell of Lavender, Sage, Orange Peel, Eucalyptus. You can also put a few drops on your pets sleeping area to ward off fleas.

    Gnats- Citronella does the trick.

    Moths- Use Cedar or Patchouli. You can put a few drops on a cotton ball in your closet in an inconspicuous place to take care of these pesky bugs

    Mealworms- will avoid your grain products if you keep a cotton ball with Spearmint scent near your products.

    Rats, Mice, Gophers, Squirrels, Moles- hate the aroma of Peppermint. Place a small drop of Peppermint on a cotton ball and drop it down a Gopher hole, you will never see that varmint again.
