Why Natural Bug Repellant?
First, let’s talk a bit about why the commercial bug repellants containing DEET (N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide) are so harmful. DEET is a known neurotoxin .
DEET may cause anything from skin rashes, nausea, headaches, chest pain, and even seizures when applied topically to the skin. Children, elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are at most risk for experiencing symptoms of toxicity from the use of DEET. This neurotoxin also affects aquatic, bird, and other wildlife.
We are surrounded by natural things in this world that are safe to apply topically and do not harm our environments. Things that are extremely aromatic in nature, tend to be great deterrents of pest. We even make simple tea sprays of mint to treat different pests on plants in our garden. You can put a few drops of mint on cotton balls and place in corners of your house to deter spiders too.
