Natural Repellent

As the weather warms up, so does the prevalence of pesky insects such as mosquitoes and sandflies. While these insects are often just an annoyance, they can also carry dangerous diseases such as dengue fever and the Ross River virus. That’s why it’s important to protect yourself and your loved ones from these insects, and one of the best ways to do so is by using natural insect repellent. In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of using natural insect repellent and why you should consider using it this summer.  

  1. Safe for you and the environment  

One of the most significant benefits of using natural insect repellent is that it’s safe for you and the environment. Most chemical insect repellents contain harmful chemicals such as DEET, which can cause skin irritation and other adverse health effects. Natural insect repellent, on the other hand, uses plant-based ingredients such as citronella, eucalyptus, and lavender to repel insects. These ingredients are non-toxic and safe for use around children and pets, making them a great choice for families.  

  1. Effective against insects  

Contrary to popular belief, natural insect repellent can be just as effective as chemical repellents when it comes to repelling insects. Many natural ingredients, such as citronella and eucalyptus, have been scientifically proven to repel mosquitoes and sandflies, making them an excellent choice for those looking for a natural solution.  

  1. Pleasant scent  

Many chemical insect repellents have an unpleasant odour that can be off-putting to some people. Natural insect repellents, on the other hand, often have a pleasant scent due to the essential oils used in their formulation. Lavender, for example, is a popular ingredient in natural insect repellents and has a pleasant, calming scent.  

  1. Easy to use  

Using natural insect repellent is incredibly easy. Most natural repellents come in a spray or lotion form, making them simple to apply to the skin. Some natural repellents can also be applied to clothing, providing extra protection against biting insects.  

In conclusion, using natural insect repellent is an excellent way to protect yourself and your loved ones from mosquitoes and sandflies this summer. Natural repellents are safe, effective, and easy to use, making them a great choice for families and individuals looking for a natural solution.
