Did you know that wearing sunglasses tricks your body into believing that there is no UV? It also inhibits Vitamin-D absorption and the body cannot protect itself. The Sun is a giver of Life, just don’t stare at it..

Tips:

  • Be sure to purchase a pure essential oil, some are premixed or chemical based – Shop wisely (do not use essential oils undiluted – ever)
  • Bottle should be placed away from the sun, in a cool and dark place. Otherwise the plastic will degrade into the oils
  • Citronella is a very effective oil however best for use outdoors
  • Do not overdo it with these oils, some 15-20 drops per 100ml of carrier oil is a good, and balanced combination
  • Some gardeners place Lavender and Rosemary around sensitive plants/vegetables and therefore avoid the unnecessary use of pesticides.
