Initiative Objective

By using natural products to deter insects,pests and to clean you can reduce chemicals released in the home, on ourselves, pets, and into the ground/water. Pesticides may kill a percentage of insects but they will breed faster to survive. Insects and bacteria will not develop a resistance to its natural enemy and there are natural approaches to deter insects or kill bacteria. Aromatherapy, the theraputic application of essental oils is one approach to living a taxic chemical free life. Essencial oils can be used as natural insect repellents, eliminate bacteria on floors and counter tops.
