Natural Insect Repellents from the Ancients

Recent regulations by the European Union to assess all insect repellents for toxicity and safety leaves only a few choices for consumers.Among the pending insecticides, lavender geranium and citrus essential oils and a seed extract from the Neem tree,Margosa, are expected to pass assessment.

In my travels and research over 20 years writing  Mother Nature's Herbal, I learned about these and many other natural insect repellents. I have found the best repellents come out of my gardens. I successfully use lavender for ants, moths and many flying insects. Lemongrass and citronella repels mosquitoes and geranium repels fleas, and most household pests. What the essential oils don't repel, Neem will. It has been used by gardeners for centuries to repel bugs from food crops and restore wood products. It's now recommended to wait up to 7 days before harvesting crops after application of Neem. It's time to take notice of what's growing in your garden that can replace potentially toxic products.

AromaHealth Insect Repellent can replace pesticides in flea collars

Commercial flea collars contain two toxic chemicals that affect children in their product:propoxur and tetrachlorvinphos, an organophosphate. The toxic residue left on the pets' fur leaves a neurotoxin that adversely affects children's brains The affect is similar to lead toxicity. Very recently two large pet companies agreed to remove the chemicals within a few years to avoid a lawsuit. AromaHealth Insect Repellent  is a combination of essential oil dilutions that repel and prevent flea, tick and insect invasion. It is a spray that may be applied  inside or outside one or two times daily. The dilution is nontoxic, using food grade essential oils and hydrosols. It is not toxic to children or pets. We do not know what chemicals will be used to substitute the neurotoxins.

The essential oils are used in foods commercially and nontoxic to adults, children and pets.
