How Do Tick Repellant Plants Work?
Like synthetic repellants, tick repellant plants deter ticks and insects with their natural smell. These plants contain bioactive compounds that produce a fragrance that irritates the ticks. While human beings and pets may find the smell pleasant, ticks are extremely sensitive to the smell and tend to stay away. One of the most effective tick repellant plants is Mediterranean Cistus incanus tea. It contains polyphenols, gallic acid, catechins, and bioflavonoids that keep the ticks, mosquitoes, and other insects away.
Are Tick Repellant Plants Safe?
Although the use of synthetic repellants such as N, N-Diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET) is common, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has raised serious health concerns resulting from chemical repellants. According to NIOSH, synthetic repellants contain toxic chemical substances that could penetrate into the bloodstream, resulting in skin rashes, confusion, abnormal sweating, insomnia, urinary hesitation, and impaired cognitive function.
You have read or heard of these health hazards associated with synthetic repellants like DEET, and you may be wondering if Cistus incanus tea is safe. Tick repellant plants like Cistus incanus tea are naturally safe for consumption with pleasant tastes and aroma. Experts recommend drinking Cistus incanus tea at least 2-3 times a day.
Where Can You Find Mediterranean Cistus Incanus Tea?
