6 Plants to Keep Bugs Away!

Bouquet of lavender in a rustic settingListed below are 6 plants that you can grow (indoors or out) to get rid of the creepy crawlies that invade your living space…

Feverfew

Feverfew is great for repelling mosquitoes and other flying biting insects. It is ideal for planting around outdoor seating areas, pathways and close to doorways and windows; for maximum benefit, plant in conjunction with citronella grass and lavender (see below).

In addition to its insect repellent qualities, feverfew also has many medicinal uses. It is historically used to help treat nervous disorders, headaches and it also works as a laxative and helps ease bloating.

Pyrethrum also known as Chrysanthemum

Pyrethrum helps to repel a whole host of insects and bugs, including: aphids, leafhoppers, spider mites, harlequin bugs and ticks.

Pyrethrum is best used as a ‘companion plant’ to protect other plants with its insect repellent properties. It is planted close to plants which are affected by the insects above.

Additionally a natural pesticide can be made with pyrethrum flowers. The flowers need to be dried and crushed and mixed with water. It is beyond the scope of this article to give specific instructions on potency etc., so please carry out further research before trying this, as even though the pesticide is completely natural, it can still be harmful to humans in certain situations.

But making wine from home is hard right? Far from it – in fact, when the simple steps in this eBook are applied, making your own delicious wines that your house-guests just can’t get enough of is absurdly simple. Not only is it so easy that even a child could do it (which of course is not recommended), but it is also very cheap requiring no special equipment or knowledge other than what’s in this book. You could get started within the next 5 minutes!

The secret, simple do-at-home procedures that you will discover have been used for years and proven to consistently produce outstanding wines & spirits – all done from home with the same ingredients and equipment that almost every kitchen already has.

Get The Skinny on FAT!

That’s the name of my new health and fitness ezine that’s coming out March 15, 2012!

I have made it my mission to help as many people lose weight and/or feel great as I can this year (and beyond!)

Because of my passion for living right… and my new position as RVLution coach in MonaVie.. I decided that it was time I published the ezine that has been bouncing around in the back of my head.

A few years ago, I had published a book called ‘Get The Skinny on FAT’.  It sold a few copies, but I never really did anything with it… so it has been sitting in my archives gathering e-dust.

Because I am going to be starting this ezine (on March 15, 2012), I will dust it off, re-write it so that it is up to date again and have it as a an incentive to join the ezine… I am offering it at 50% off to subscribers!

How cool is that??? 🙂

This ezine will be published on the 15th of each month and will offer:

  • -recipes
  • -exercises
  • -articles
  • -testimonials

… and more to help you lose weight, or simply get fit!

Join The RVLution!
