Aromatherapy, essential oils, and such, have no medical benefit in humans, but they do work against some pests, if you don't want to use something better.

A recent analysis of survey results found that 34 percent of new LSD initiates first used the drug in the summer. In addition, 30 percent of marijuana, 30 percent of ecstasy (MDMA/Molly), and 28 percent of cocaine use was found to begin in summer months.
