This blend is intended for human use only but we also have a blend specifically formulated for dogs to keep fleas, ticks, and mosquitos from bothering them. Did you know that commercial insect repellents are still dangerous even if they don't contain DEET? There are other harmful chemicals that repel these insects but our products are free from them.
Cistus Incanus is an amazing herb - in 2010 it became popular again for its ability to reduce the possibility of being bitten by mosquitoes and ticks for those who regularly drink the tea. Cistus Incanus is not a new discovery. In fact, it’s a plant that has a long tradition in folk remedies and, in ancient times, used for numerous medicinal and therapeutic purposes. The first book of the Bible, Genesis, references the resin of Cistus plants. In ancient Greece, it was used for wound healing and as a facial freshener. In Moroccan traditional medicine, Cistus tea is used to maintain oral cavity hygiene — mouth and throat. Other ancient uses include treating colds, coughs, menstrual issues, and rheumatism. In natural herbal medicine, the leaves of Cistus are used to treat skin issues and inflammatory diseases. Best of all, cistus incanus also has antibacterial, antifungal, and bio-film-breaking benefits (Lyme).
Our Not Citronella Blend also contains lemongrass, peppermint, and lemon balm. At the present time, we have 2 oz and 5 oz kraft bags available in store and on-line. Also, check out our line of insect repellent sprays, balms, and butters.
