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!
