Our home is surrounded by beautiful gardens, with dense, lush shrubbery. We live just moments away from the beach making it an ideal location to live. What we don’t like, is when insects make their way into our home, to build their nests out of the weather. Surprisingly enough, living on the Sunshine Coast, we get plenty of rain, so ants are a big problem.
It’s important for our family to only use safe, cost effective and natural solutions in every aspect of our home, and pest control is no exception. With chemicals like Allethrin, Phenothrin and Tetramethrin in common insect sprays, one has to question the effect these nasty chemicals have on our health. When you use these sprays, you are inhaling these substances into your body.
Exposure to these chemicals can cause itching, burning, numbness, nausea, skin and eye irritation, irritability to sound or touch, abnormal facial sensation, sensation of prickling, tingling, or creeping on skin, headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, salivation, and fatigue.
How is this still on the market?!
We have been using our own natural pest control spray with great success and not only is it cost effective, but it smells great too. Repel Insects Naturally with 4 Ingredients:
You Will Need:
8oz Glass spray bottle
15 drops of doTERRA’s Purify Essential Oil Blend
10 drops of doTERRA’s Clove Essential Oil
10 drops of doTERRA’s Peppermint Essential Oil
Combine ingredients in the spray bottle, and spray where needed. You can use this on skirting boards where ants may trail, on window sills, anywhere! This spray not only works to repel ants, but also deters cockroaches, flies and many other household bugs, making it a great go-to spray for all your needs.
Peppermint Essential Oil contains menthol and bugs can’t stand it. We place cotton balls on a jar lid with a drop of peppermint essential oil on them, and slide them under the fridge, in cupboards and places cockroaches and bugs would love. It’s a great deterrent!
Clove Essential Oil is not only potent, but helps to eliminate odours. Clove has been used for centuries to repel fleas, ticks, mites and other bugs.
Purify is used to eliminate odours. It helps to purify the surfaces and air, removing any temptation for insects to move in. It contains Lemon, Lime, and Pine essential oils, known for their powerful cleaning properties, along with Siberian and Austrian Firs to purify the air and protect against environmental threats.
Got bugs in your home? You NEED to try this! We have been using this in our home for 2 years now and it still works as well as the first day we tried it.
Bonus: we can still breathe after spraying it!
