Ever wonder why your lungs feel so heavy around a burning mosquito coil or tiki torch fuel?

A study of mosquito coils sold in the U.S. found that some mosquito coils contain octachlorodipropyl ether (s-2) that, during the smouldering of the coils, produces an extremely potent lung carcinogen as a byproduct called (bis(chloromethyl)ether – or “BCME”). Fortunately, s-2 is banned in many countries.

To DEET or NOT to DEET?

Did you ever stop to think that what’s in your ‘bug spray’ could have a negative impact on your health? DEET, developed in the U.S. for the army during the second World War, was originally tested as a pesticide on farmland, and has significant drawbacks. It is a known neurotoxin (destructive to nerve and brain cells) and can cause headaches, dizziness, memory loss, agitation, disorientation, shortness of breath, tremors, seizures, and worse.

Unbelievably, DEET is the most widely used insect repellent in the world, still to be found in nearly 200 brands of bug repellents – even though the Environmental Protection Agency in the U.S. requires several warnings on products that contain it.

Pure essential oils on the other hand, made in nature, and compatible with the cells of our body, may be used to make your own safe, effective, natural insect repellent, that is actually beneficial to yourΒ body – cleansing, purifying, healing, and energizing.
