Today, I want to talk to you about about the dangers of BUG REPELLENT!!!!!
Your skin is your largest organ, that means your body is DRINKING up everything you put on it! YIKES!
Have you ever read about the dangers of DEET and over the counter bug repellents?
Why DEET-Containing Repellents Are Better Off Avoided
About 30 percent of Americans use DEET every year, but you should know that this chemical – though generally effective in keeping away insects – can have deadly repercussions. From 1961 to 2002, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry reports eight deaths related to DEET exposure.
Three of these resulted from deliberate ingestion, but five of them occurred following DEET exposure to the skin in adults and children.3 Psychological effects have also been reported including altered mental state, auditory hallucinations, and severe agitation.
In children, the most frequently reported symptoms of DEET toxicity reported to poison control centers were lethargy, headaches, tremors, involuntary movements, seizures, and convulsions. Further, in a study of more than 140 National Park Service employees, 25 percent reported health effects they attributed to DEET, including:
Skin or mucous membrane irritation
Transient numb or burning lips
In addition, Duke University Medical Center pharmacologist Mohamed Abou-Donia spent 30 years researching the effects of pesticides. He discovered that prolonged exposure to DEET can impair cell function in parts of your brain -- demonstrated in the lab by death and behavioral changes in rats with frequent or prolonged DEET use. Other potential side effects DEET exposure include:
Muscle weakness and fatigue
Shortness of breath
Muscle and joint pain

THROW that Deet AWAY and check out this homemade insect repellent we make. We use this on our kids, ourselves and even our dog. Safe, natural, smells amazing and we love it!!!!
HOMEMADE BUG SPRAY:
10 drops each Thyme and Geranium (anti-tick)
10 drops each Lavender and Melaleuca
15 drops Terrashield (doTERRA citronilla bug repellent oil)
15 each Cedarwood and Lemongrass
Add water to the top of a glass 4 ounce spray bottle. Shake and spray. Repeat often.
Dale had HUGE mosquitoes swarming and landing on him but NEVER biting when we used this spray. Amazing!
See the second bottle in the picture? DoTERRA makes a ready made Terrashield for your convenience. Grab and leave in your purse, baseball bag or stroller!
Terrashield comes in an OIL and in a ready to use SPRAY.
We use the oil on Sophie's collar for natural bug repelling, and we use it to make our own spray. You can also diffuse it on your back porch in a diffuser with cedarwood and lemongrass! Mmmm, smells good and works good!
Come on over to my Green Living Class page, I am so excited to teach you more!
My focus this month, is on how to GREEN UP YOUR LIFE, using doTERRA essential oils and products!
Today I want to share how we have greened up our DISHWASHER recently, by making our own dishwashing powder and liquid.
There is a safe, natural alternative to everything you are currently using!
I want to help you live better, choose better and feel better with doTERRA, you NEVER oil alone!
Dishwasher recipe number 1, is in powder form:
It uses Borax, Baking Powder, Salt and Essential Oils. You can use Citric Acid if you need more help with hard water.
NOTE: Fill the entire rinse compartment with white vinegar!!!
Curious about the safety of Borax? Check out this article:
I'll tell what I do know, it's a BETTER CHOICE than what is sold in the stores! Yikes!
Our dishes came out sparkling clean! Batch two came out a tiny bit gritty so I am doing less powder and adding a teaspoon of our On Guard concentrate to it.
People with hard water will need to play with ratios too. You can also try recipe 2 instead, coming up.
Let me introduce you to the, oh so amazing, doTERRA Concentrated Cleaner, which I do my WHOLE HOUSE with.
Seriously, toilet, dishes, shower, floor, windows, mirrors, all of it. Safe and natural, On Guard oil in a soap base!
This powerful essential oil blend is combined with plant-based derivatives that provide a non-toxic and biodegradable way to clean and eliminate odors, so it is safe for loved ones as well as the environment. The multi-purpose capabilities of doTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate make it perfect to expertly clean hard surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, or any room, leaving behind a clean and invigorating scent.
ONE bottle can make 16 bottles of cleaner. Pennies on the dollar!!!
Green cleaning saves you some GREEN! And better yet, you won't choke and cough as you clean your bathroom!!!!
Dishwasher Recipe 2:
1. 1Tablespoon of baking soda + 1/2 teaspoon On Guard Cleaner Concentrate in the detergent compartment.
2. Fill the jet dry compartment with white vinegar.
You'll have sparkling clean dishes in a safe, natural way.
I have so many amazing, shocking and helpful things planned for you all of May on our Green Up Your Life Class page. Won't you please come join us?
Nothing feels as comforting and welcoming as a tidy, well-tended home.
But a clean home isn’t necessarily a healthy one!
The average American welcomes more than 1800 toxic chemicals into their home in the form of sweet smelling laundry soap to powerful cleaners, candles, personal care products and more....
Have you ever been curious about green living and creating daily healthy habits?
We have a safe counterpart to everything you are currently using! YAY!
