Mosquito and tick bites are always unpleasant and in some cases can cause serious, even life-threatening conditions. Luckily, there are not many places on the Earth where mosquito or a tick bite can kill you. Another good news- you can protect yourself from those annoying little bloodsuckers! Repellents are chemical compounds that prevent those insect bites. Simply- humans covered with repellent taste and smell awful to them.
But, is it really necessary to use N, N-diethyl-3-methyl-benzamide or N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide (also known as DEET- chemical pesticides) to protect against ticks and mosquitoes? What if you (or a child or a pet) swallows a pesticide which molecule is so big you can almost see it?
Our mission is simple- everything we do, we make sure it’s 100% organic and 100% safe. We came up with the idea of making a family, environment-friendly repellent, and that’s exactly what we did- it’s organic, it’s safe and smells good.
Instead of side effects, we talk about side benefits.
Lavander (Lavandula angustifolia)
One of the key components of our repellent line has been in the focus of scientific research for decades- it has a strong antimicrobial and antifungal activity1. Lavander shows a strong anxiolytic and anti-depressive effect as well- it will make you feel more relaxed and sleep better 2. Unlike benzodiazepines and similar drugs, lavender did not make people feel drowsy and slowed down- only pleasantly relaxed.
Eucalyptus essential oil
Another natural repellent we like to add to our mixtures. Besides it repels off ticks and mosquitoes, it has antiseptic, immune-regulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. All these effects have been documented through many research studies in the past few decades 3.
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) essential oil
Back in 2014, an interesting study about lemongrass essential oil effects has been published. The research confirmed earlier findings that lemongrass essential oil has a potent antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties, particularly in the treatment of skin conditions. Also, the paper presented some rather impressive results about the effects of lemongrass vapor- according to the team of researchers, in the near future we might use lemongrass vapor as an air decontaminant in hospitals4.
The list of essential oils we use and their health benefits do not end here. This is just a fraction of health benefits we deliver with our products. We invite you to join our vision- making a family-friendly environment safe and healthy for the generations that come. Welcome!
