The emergence of Zika in Singapore has stirred many of us into adopting precautionary measures. As the Aedes mosquito is the primary carrier of the Zika virus, there’s a growing urgency to repel mosquitoes. Warding off mosquito bites is crucial to combat the spread of Zika. Both chemical and natural products have shown varying degrees of success in fending off mosquitoes. But how safe are these repellants?
Deet Repellants vs Natural Repellants
Deet has been shown to be effective in deterring mosquitoes from biting. However the toxicity of its chemical concern may be a concern. DEET exposure can lead to insomnia, mood disturbances and impaired cognitive function. DEET has also been cited as not suitable for infants that are less than two months old.
While Lemongrass Essential Oils has shown to repel mosquitoes for around an hour, it’s a much safer alternative to DEET-based products. With natural repellants, re-application will be needed to maintain a longer-lasting protection. However, using nature’s repellants ensures the health of parents and their children is not compromised. After all, the well-being of our loved ones is paramount.
Why we should go Natural To Repel Mosquitoes
Throughout history, Lemongrass Essential Oils are known to have insecticidal properties and is widely used in insect repellents. As a natural insecticide, lemon grass and its oil are not associated with some of the toxic or harmful side effects of other insecticides.
