I love Dr. Oz and his down to earth information. In his latest series “Summer Time Tips” he walks you thru all your summer time concerns. His first segment, and top number one concern by his viewers was “BUGS.” Which for me is a subject near and dear to my heart.
Mosquitoes LOVE me and I welt up so bad after each bite. Bees and wasps always seem to find me too, and their sting sets off a nasty infection that if not treated quickly, I will end up at the hospital. And, lastly we have dogs and a cat, so there is always a concern for fleas and ticks on them and in our home.
This 5-minute video by Dr Oz is loaded with lots of common sense information. I personally would not use products that have “DEET” in them. For two reasons – First my experience with DEET is that I go extremely sick after using it when we were in Hawaii for a vacation as we visited the botanical gardens. Second, is that it is starting to have effects on the enviroment.
I did like the information on how to properly remove a tick – and his visual presentation of tick removal was great. Over my life time I have removed plenty of ticks from my dogs, husband and myself. I recently learned that when you put “liquids or other products” on ticks that they regurgitate their saliva and that can lead to “tick borne” illness…wow that was news to me!
I’m always looking for products to help my clients – I know many folks hate the process of removing ticks from their dogs and get really uptight from removing ticks from their family members too. I found this innovative product that removes the ticks with a simple twisting motion. After watching the video, I like the concept and will order a few for the home, car and first aid kit – in fact I think I will get some for my office too to share with my clients.
As a Holistic healer, I use Young Living Essential Oils and Supplements to keep the bugs at bay. By changing my vibration with the essential oils and checking in each season with the bug’s vibration I am able to custom blend spray(s) that keeps the bugs at bay for myself and whole family.
If you are looking for a new way to enjoy the outdoors without using chemical products…that is virtually ”bug free” give me a call to discuss your vibrational needs and I will make a custom blend for you and your family!
Like to read more…New York Department of Health has some good information on ticks and repellants.
