Spray It Away: Insects, Odors and Anxiety
Bye Bye bugs, odors and anxiety
Ticks are gross, but so are toxic chemicals. Subtle scents of peppermint, wintergreen, spearmint, lemongrass, cedarwood and geranium keep you feeling refreshed all day and confident about being outside. Non-toxic, can be applied directly to skin and clothes. We spray our house, our doors and screens and even our yard when we want to cookout.
We use it while biking in the woods of Wareham, which are filled with ticks and mosquito's and we come out clean! We use it on our dogs and it keeps them tick free all summer. We use it in the bathroom, under our arms and on our person as an "air freshener".
Essential oils largely affect the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, which once stimulated release hormones into the body. So when we inhale essential oils with stimulating properties it will produce a response in the appropriate part of the limbic system. Essential oils are thought to have therapeutic effects by stimulating the olfactory system, which is connected to the limbic system in the brain—the part of the brain which controls functions such as breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, memory, stress levels and hormone balance.
