Essential oils: The natural and safe alternatives to chemical based repellents

 

Its that time of the year again that marks the arrival of some unwanted intruders in our homes. Yes, you got it right; MOSQUITOES.


As Summers Arrive, We start to Google ways to get rid of insects and bugs from our homes. While there are numerous ways to get rid of these unwanted intruders, most of them revolves around killing them with poisonous & harmful sprays or vapourizers.

We happily purchase them because they get the job done to get rid of these insects instantly. But, what we dont realise is that we are not just getting rid of these insects, we are also deteriorating our health as well because these products are made up of toxic chemicals that are not just harmful to the nature but also toxic to our health

What if you could get rid of insects and bugs without killing them and without causing any harm to your health or environment as well?

The answer is Essential Oils!

So, what exactly are essential oils and how do they help us in getting rid of insects and bugs?

Essential oil is a natural oil typically derived directly from either plant leaves, flowers, stems or roots by distillation and having the characterstic odour of the plant from which it is extracted.

Essential oils have many medical benefits but also works as good repellents as well due to the presence of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes.

We use essential oils in making natural and herbal repellents that are free from harmful chemicals, are skin friendly, beneficial to human health, cruelty free and are animal & environmental friendly. There are many types of essential oils each with their own health benefits and repellent properties.

Here is a list of popular essential oils that we frequently use in our Herbal repellent products.

Lavender Essential Oil - Lavender oil is the most versatile essential oil. It contains a compound called linalool which creates a fully-fledged olfactory mosquito shield that is not harsh on the human nose. It works best when paired with tea tree or citronella oil.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil - Eucalyptus oil appears to provide reasonably long-lasting repellent activity. These sprays are popular due to their comparative effectiveness, pleasant scent and lack of greasy residue.They provided reliable results when it comes to preventing mosquitoes from biting, regardless of application style.

Tea Tree Essential Oil - As far as essential oils go, tea tree goes beyond the ordinary with its anti-fungal, antiseptic, antibacterial and antibiotic properties.While most chemical repellents are highly toxic, tea tree provides an excellent natural alternative. The oil can even be directly applied on the affected area for immediate relief.

Citronella Essential Oil - Citronella essential oil is probably the best known natural insect repellent. It has a floral, citrus-like aroma. The benefits of citronella extend beyond keeping bugs at bay. It has been used for centuries to treat rashes, infections, and other health conditions.

Rosemary Essential Oil - The woody scent of rosemary keeps mosquitoes, flies and moths away. The natural repellent ensures no harsh chemicals end up on your skin. Many chemical repellents contain substances that can be toxic or irritating to sensitive skin.

Cinnamon Essential Oil - The strong smell of cinnamon keeps many bugs away including wasps, spiders and mosquitos. Its scent is so overpowering that it interferes with the neuroreceptors of the insects. Thus cinnamon promises to be a great-smelling, environmentally friendly pesticide.
