08 May Benefits of Using Natural Organic Insect Repellent
Ah, the grocery store dilemma: think about what you need and you’ll find it at this aisle or that. It’s convenient, fast, and maybe even cheap, but because it is all those things, it hinders you from asking yourself: is this the best option? Is this really my only option?
When thinking about getting essentials such as bug repellents, you will do well to take a little moment to reflect on your choices. Is that bottle of bug repellent lotion your best bet, even though it is infused with tons of chemicals? Or can you actually take a quick step back (outside the store, if you will) to explore your alternatives – specifically, your natural options?
It’s time to make the choice that’s good for you, your family, and the environment: use a natural organic insect repellent now. Using a natural repellent comes with many amazing benefits, as listed below
Natural products are free of DEET
The full term for DEET is actually quite a mouthful: N, N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide. DEET is the active ingredient found in most of the insect repellents you can pick up from the store. While it is effective in repelling ticks, mosquitoes, fleas, and other bugs, the substance itself may potentially harm your central nervous system in the long run. You do not want products like that touching yourself or your kids most especially.
Once you encounter natural repellents, you will be surprised at just how effective it is. Turns out, skin insect repellents do not require chemicals like DEET in order to successfully protect the skin from bugs. Why not give it a try, right?
They are great for your skin
No matter how tidy a home is, bugs will always find their way in. They can’t help but be attracted to things like food, liquids, or junk. This is why a trusty insect repellent will always come in handy.
Everyone needs insect repellents, but not everyone’s skin is compatible with standard insect repellents. Those with skin issues like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, or acne may not react well to chemical products. Those with sensitive skin in general who are constantly at risk for irritation are also advised to avoid standard repellents. The best option then is to go natural! Without the harmful substances that worsen their skin condition, they can stay bite or itch–free by using natural products.
But even if you don’t suffer these conditions, using repellents with natural ingredients will still do so many wonders for your skin. Often, natural ingredients serve more than one purpose, and one of these is skin health. Natural ingredients contain vitamins and minerals that improve your skin’s appearance and texture. Wouldn’t that be an awesome deal?
Natural repellents simply work better
The common misconception people have about natural repellents is that there might be a “compensatory factor” involved. They think that if a product is natural, the effects are not as instant or impressive as the standard repellent, so they feel there must be something they need to do to compensate. They think they should use up a higher amount for every application, use it with a complimentary product, or apply it more frequently.
Essential oils such as rosemary and cedarwood have properties that make them great insect repellents. Essential oils are extracted from flowers, grasses, fruits, leaves, or trees. These plants have been designed by nature to contain properties that repel pests so that they can grow, bloom, and fruit or flower successfully. That’s why it only makes sense to take after this natural process and bring it into your home by using an organic insect repellent.
This is why cedar is a popular choice at furniture stores – it’s much less likely to invite termites. Also, a natural oil insect repellent is not only effective at driving away bugs. They also contain antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal properties. There’s plenty you can get out of them.
They are good for the mind as well
A natural repellent offers great aromatherapy as well. Just a few sniffs of the product and your mind will find itself in a peaceful meadow, or a dewy rainforest, or a garden in spring. This scent calms your mind, relaxes your muscles, and makes you feel at ease. Wouldn’t that be a welcome replacement to the strong, often dizzying scent of your standard repellent?
The natural route is cruelty–free
Choose natural and you’ll be doing right by mother nature herself. Natural products are vegan-friendly, which means you have the assurance that no animals were harmed in the production of your sprays, lotions, or creams. You get to enjoy staying bug-free, smelling great, feeling relaxed, with absolutely none of the guilt.
