Natural Herbal Insect and Critter Repellent
Summer would not be complete without the nasty annoying bugs to ruin your day. It never fails. As soon as the days get hotter and longer, every insect known to man flies in your face and becomes very uncomfortable. The natural inclination is to grab a bottle of bug spray and destroy the insect before it gets in your face. The problem is that all those bug sprays contain DEET and a plethora of other toxic carcinogenic petro-chemicals that can make you sick and destroy your health. They're also terrible for the environment. The spray may keep the bugs away, but at the cost of destroying your health, it's better to use natural earth-friendly herbal products.
Citronella, peppermint, cedar, sandalwood, spearmint, tea tree, pennyroyal, eucalyptus, Jojoba, and olive oil are a wonderful combination of essential oils that will help keep the bugs away and protect your health and the environment at the same time. Whatever critters annoy your day – ants, mosquitoes, noseeums, gnats, and others – you can use these pure organic essential oils to protect your skin and keep the nasty buggers away and keep them at bay. Borax is another effective natural non-toxic repellent that is very effective in protecting your environment from red ants, roaches, and another annoying destructive critters. Put a few drops of pure peppermint essential oil and some fresh natural rosemary twigs and leaves in various parts of your home and the ants will leave you alone. If you use common sense, nature can be your healthy best friend!
