Spring, Nature VS Insect Repellents

Most of us see spring as a exceptional season. It is a time for renewal. Everything is fresh and brand new. New baby animals are being born, like fawns and bunnies.

So many colors are springing up with fresh new flowers, beautiful red roses, vibrant violet lavender plants, and many more. Not to mention the eye opening, deep green, new grass. All the wonderful sights and smells makes this a great season to have on this beautiful earth.

Be Cautious

However, just as much as spring is a glorious time it can also be a very annoying time. As there are brand new things being born and springing up there is also those pesky insects and bugs being born and coming out of hiding as well. Bugs and insects like mosquitoes, fleas, spiders, ticks, and even flies.

Being annoying is only one small problem with these types of bugs and insects. The bigger problems with these are they can also carry diseases, like tick fever, Malaria, and even yellow fever. This is why it is so important that in this beautiful season we make sure to take precautions against these insects and bugs.

Now you can always go to your local retail store and buys chemical products to help keep these bugs at bay. You know the usual things like OFF or Citronella candles. But do you realize by buying these type of products you could be doing just as much harm to yourself as these bugs can be doing to you?

I mean stop and think about it for a minute. These products have a horrible smell that comes from all the chemicals they use. And if you have ever used a product like OFF, then you know after using it your skin feels kinda sticky.

Why? Well that is those wonderful chemicals they are using to either kill the bugs or ward them off. Now here is the kicker of it, those chemicals are going into your body! Yes those chemicals are now soaking through your skin and into your system. Hmm right!

Well the Citronella candles you don’t apply to yourself so they can’t be harmful can they? Sorry to say but yes they can still be very harmful. You breathe in the chemicals that it puts off in the air and this is still entering your body.

Some pretty scary thoughts right! I don’t know about you, but for me I have set out to find better ways to fight off these harmful bugs without doing more harm to me. So you want to know what I have found?

Natural Solutions

You can take a deep breathe there is good news! You can fight off these pests in an all natural and safe way. Nature has provided us with several great tools.

Nature’s Tools

  • Lavender plants
  • Vanilla
  • Lemon grass
  • Petunias
  • Marigolds
  • Rosemary
  • Oregano

These are just a small handful of natural plants and flowers that can help fight off bugs like spiders, mosquitoes, fleas and ticks.

Although most of us thoroughly enjoy the smell of these, bugs and insects often hate the smell and look of these plants. And in the end they have more of a tendency to avoid areas that have these plants/flowers in them.

Don’t have room for flower beds? No worries there! Some of these nature’s tools can also be found in essential oils as well. You can take these oils and spray or apply them to your body as well. And because these are all natural this is completely safe (unless you are allergic, then please do not apply)

That’s right these essential oils can work just as effectively as live plants. Not to mention with the oils you can also pour them in a small container and spread them around the inside of your house to help ward off these harmful and pesky bugs as well.

Which One Will You Choose?

Now that leaves you with making a choice. When spring starts rolling in are you going to go into a retail store and buy one of these products like OFF and Citronella candles? Yes these will help you ward off pesky and dangerous bugs. However, at the same time could be just as harmful if not more so to you.

Or does nature’s way sound more like a better option to you? Not only will you have a glorious looking yard, but you will also free of chemicals and pest free. Better for your health and fabulous smells!

What is lavender tea? I want to start off by telling you to make lavender tea you use the bud of the flower. This part has a sweet but very savory flavor. Are you ready for the best part? You can make hot lavender tea or iced lavender tea and both are super easy. Actually I will even leave you a recipe for both a little further down on this post.

Since I am letting you know what lavender tea is, I also want to explain to you the different nutrients that you can find in 1 cup of  freshly brewed hot lavender tea. I hope this way you can also see the full impact of how healthy this natural tea is for you.

Wow  what a list right? As you can see not only does lavender have many benefits that can help you like reducing stress and muscle soreness, but it also has a ton of nutrients that can be very beneficial to your health as well.

Now would you like to know how to make lavender tea so you can start benefiting from all of these great nutrients? Well next I am going to explain to you how you can make hot lavender tea.

Hot Lavender Tea

When I first heard of this I have to say I was sort of thinking “I don’t think this would be good tasting”. However, now that I have read more into it, it sounds amazing. And to be honest I will be trying this very soon. Apparently the lavender bud actually has a very sweet and savory flavor.

Now I also read where people would also add all natural honey and even sometimes a little bit of lemon for just a tiny bit extra flavor. So even if it is not the exact flavor you are looking for there are some way to dress it up some. However, I want to recommend using all natural items this way you still are getting the best  possible nutrients and benefits you can.

Okay so here you how you make

Hot Lavender Tea

  1. You will start off with boiling water. (8oz) Now I am giving you this number so you can get a general idea of the amount of ingredients to mix. But you can always do more or less as you like or need.
  2. After the water reaches boiling, go ahead and pour it into a cup.
  3. Next you will want to take 4tsps. of freshly ground lavender (remember we are using the bud of the flower) and put it in a tea ball or a tea bag holder.
  4. Set this lavender down in the water and let it sit for 10 mins.
  5. Last but not least remove this lavender and sit down and sip away!

See it is a super simple recipe! Plus you can dress it up some if you like. Some ideas would be, mint, fresh cinnamon, lemon, and natural honey. Can you imagine how wonderful this would taste! It is making my mouth water.

But how about if you do not really like hot tea? Well no worries! I have a super simple recipe for making iced lavender tea as well!

Iced Lavender Tea

Personally, I like both hot tea and iced tea so I can see I would enjoy this either way. But I have to say a nice big glass of iced tea on a hot summer’s day is one of the best inventions there could be. And now there are also saying if I add lavender to this I could also be helping myself health wise as well. Yep, I am in what about you? O wait you need the recipe first! Okay here you go.

Iced Lavender Tea

  1. You are going to start this one off the same way but a larger quantity. For this recipe you are going to want to boil a 1/2 gallon of water. (And just like above you can adjust this recipe for your own needs)
  2. Then you want to pour it into a pitcher. (It would be best to use one that will with stand the heat and not melt).
  3. Now for this next part you are going to add the freshly ground up lavender into the water. (You can play with this amount to fit your taste needs).
  4. Next it is best to let it sit for about 15 mins. This way the lavender’s flavors can completely mix in.
  5. And finally you can either leave the lavender in or strain it out. But go ahead pour you a glass add some ice and you have a nice cool refreshing yet healthy drink.

There you have it 2 very easy ways to make some really great sounding lavender tea. Both offer such great benefits. Now earlier I mentioned that these 2 lavender teas could help you with aches and pains, so how about we go ahead and look at how many different things the lavender tea can help you with!
