Natural Repellent Developed For Deadly Viruses

Note from Donna:
We've been using essential oils for many years.  Originally, we bought them to make our own cleaning supplies.  Then we discovered how their antimicrobial super power worked well with the immune system ... and from there off we went to study more about these amazing creations from God.  I love when I find these kinds of research and development articles.  When there's no hope for a drug or vaccine ... God still provides us with solutions from Nature.  

The special process they use with the oils is not a piece of magic ... the oils themselves do what they do.  But if one needs to get a patent and "own" a formula, they need to do something more than just use essential oils that anybody can purchase at any time.  Be sure you get the right species of oil and that they are authentic and 100% pure oil, no dilutions.  Pure essential oils are not cheap.  It takes a lot of raw materials to make a bottle of pure and authentic oil.  Get more info.

From Mexico News Daily
Students at a university in Oaxaca say they have developed an ecologically friendly repellent that is effective against the mosquito that carries the Zika virus as well as chikungunya and dengue.

They claim that their totally natural product is an economic means of combating those ailments, and once available on the market will be 60% cheaper than traditional repellents.

It consists of essential oils combined with alcohol, distilled water and glycerine and causes no allergic reactions in the skin because it employs all-natural products.  Read the entire article.
