I just watched this documentary, Fed Up, on Netflix. It's a must-see movie. Here's the trailer.
Here are just a few things I learned: being obese isn't a matter of personal responsibility (watch movie to understand what I mean), sugar is more addictive than Cocaine, moneyed interests control the food we eat, 80% of the food in the market has added sugar, Sugar is the Tobacco of 90's, we are the only generation whose kids will live SHORTER life spans than us...#fedupmovie Are you fed up?
I just finished watching Shark Tank (love that show!) and there was a company seeking funding for their all natural insect repellent.
This piqued my interest because I make my own all natural insect repellent with essential oils. In fact, I said to my husband "They are probably using essential oils."
Sure enough, I checked their site and their main ingredient is Cedar oil (which is Cedarwood essential oil), I also noticed their products sell for $39.99 and up and probably only last 6 months (depending on use).
Why not make your own?
The all natural insect repellent I make costs me less than $1.00! (Not including the price of the spray bottle. But once you buy one you can keep re-using it).
I use an Insect Repellent Blend which primarily contains Cedarwood and Citronella oil. It also contains: Ylang Ylang, Catnip,
Lemon Eucalyptus, Litsea, Arborvitae, Nootka, and Vanilla
It smells wonderful! How many repellents can you say that about? It's all natural and non-toxic!
I basically add 10-20 drops (depending on bottle size) to a spray bottle and then fill it with distilled water.
One 15 ml bottle retails for $14.00 and wholesales for $10.50. A 15 ml bottle contains 250 drops. It is .04 cents a drop. This bottle will last me over a year! Probably two or three years.
It's cheaper to make your own!
TIPS for Using Insect Repellent Blend
- Add distilled water to a 4 oz bottle, add 20 drops Insect Repellent Blend. - Spray on legs, arms, clothes, tent, picnic tables or around house. Safe for children.
- Safe to use on DOGS. Put a drop on their collar. Or spray bedding, fur (avoid eyes, mouth, ears, face)
-Excellent for GARDENING. Place 1-3 drops on a cotton ball and stick cotton ball in planter with herbs for all natural, non-toxic gardening.
