They don't call bugs 'pests' for nothing .
No sooner do you finally get to sit down in your back yard with a favourite book ~ or work on a 'prize puzzle' or perhaps to enjoy a glass of wine to just unwind & relax after a rather taxing day ~ when you are instantly surrounded by those pesky black flies and mosquitoes.
Many herbal plants have scents we as humans find appealing but drive the bugs crazy!
The characteristic aromas of herbs come from a plants' release of certain organic chemicals called 'terpenes' which are found in the essential oils of fragrant plants.
Next time you are out in the yard or walking in the woods - try an alternative to that aerosol can of bug spray. Hand to Soul has crushed some of the most bug repellant herbs in a mortar and pestle, releasing the terpenes to create a very safe and pleasant human and animal safe spray but plays sweet revenge on those pesky insects.
