Does vanilla repell gnats?

Yes, it does! After a rainy Spring the gnats have been terrible

where we live. Our neighbor told us about vanilla extract repelling

gnats. I was skeptical at first but thought I'd try it, and was

amazed to find it really worked very well! A few dabs of extract on

the neck, ears and forehead, and the annoying bugs disappeared,

plus you have the added benefit of smelling like a delicious batch

of fresh baked cookies - lol. Certainly better than traditional

stinky bug sprays!
