Locally Made Organic Insect Repellents

It's rainy season once again! And with rain comes... MOSQUITOES! During rainy season, we see an increase in dengue cases all over the country and everyone can be a victim, young and old, and even celebrities. Remember when the taping of the now defunct series "Be Careful with my Heart" got affected when the lead star Jodi Sta. Maria suffered from dengue? It goes to show that dengue chooses no one. So it is always important that we protect ourselves and our loved ones from these dangerous creatures.

There are many ways to prevent dengue outbreak. One of course is to keep our surroundings clean. Breeding places of mosquitoes must be destroyed. Also, we need to avoid areas that are infested with mosquitoes. But sometimes we fail to realize that the danger is lurking just inside the comforts of our home. With this, we need to to make sure that our home is indeed a safe haven for everyone especially for our little ones and that they are always protected wherever part of the house they may be.

In my case, insect repellent products such as lotions, sprays and patches are a must-have. I used to buy chemical insect repellents since they are widely available in my area and they were the most popular back then. But when I learned and tried organic insect repellent products, I never looked back. I prefer organic over chemical or synthetic products because they are safer for humans particularly now that I use them to my son as well.

In case you weren't aware, there are lots of organic insect repellent products from local companies. Find out more about them...
