We Use Only the Highest Quality All Natural, Organic Food-Safe Essential Oils
Cloves and Clove Oil
Clove oil, derived from the clove plant, has eugenol as its primary active component. It can be used as an insecticide, fungicide, or herbicide, and the EPA considers it to pose minimal risk to human health due to its common use in food. This makes clove oil a great option for natural pest control.
Peppermint & Peppermint Oil
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) a widely cultivated culinary and medicinal herb, has an essential oil that contains menthol, which is a primary source of its biocidal properties. Peppermint oil is effective at controlling pests such as mites and mosquito larvae and also has repellent properties to insects, dogs, and cats. Due to its history as a flavoring agent, peppermint and its oil are considered safe when used properly, making them a popular choice for natural pest control.
Cinnamon & Cinnamon Oil
Cinnamon and cinnamon oil are derived from tropical plants and have long been used in food and fragrances. They are also effective natural pest control agents due to their active substances, including cinnamaldehyde and eugenol. Cinnamon primarily acts as a repellent against pests, although it also has biocidal action at higher doses. Despite causing skin irritation, cinnamon and cinnamon oils are allowed by the EPA as active ingredients in pesticide products that are exempt from registration. The EPA also considers them exempt from tolerance requirements on various food crops, making them a safe choice for natural pest control.
Rosemary & Rosemary Oil
Rosemary, a popular culinary herb, and rosemary oil are derived from the Rosmarinus officinalis shrub. It is primarily used as an insect repellent, which makes it a valuable option for natural pest control. Its use in food products does not pose notable safety concerns.
Garlic & Garlic Oil
Garlic is a food crop with documented therapeutic and pesticidal effects, making it an excellent option for natural pest control. Its sulfur-containing compounds make it an effective bactericide and inhibitor of fungal growth, making it useful in the agricultural industry. Garlic can be used as an insecticide with both repellent and biocidal properties, making it a valuable tool in the control of various pests. Garlic crop residues also have nematicidal and herbicidal properties, which make it an attractive option for crop rotation and weed control. According to the Select Committee on GRAS Substances (SCOGS 1973), there is no evidence that garlic or oil of garlic poses a hazard to the public when used at current levels, making it a safe and effective choice for natural pest control.
Geraniol, a naturally occurring terpenoid found in food plants, is commonly used as a fragrance or ingredient in cosmetics. Its primary use as a pesticide is as a mosquito and tick repellent or against mites, making it a valuable option for natural pest control. Most studies show that geraniol poses little risk to the environment or human health, although a portion of the population may suffer from sub-lethal allergies upon dermal or inhalation exposure.
Thyme & Thyme Oil
Thyme, thyme oil, and its main active constituent thymol have demonstrated anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and insecticidal properties, making them a great natural pest control option. Thyme is widely used as a food ingredient and is considered safe for pesticidal purposes.d
Citric acid is a naturally occurring substance and a common food ingredient. Its pesticidal use is primarily as an anti-microbial. The EPA has affirmed that no additional data requirements need to be filled and on that basis determined that citric acid can be used as an active ingredient in minimum-risk pesticides.
Sodium chloride, commonly known as salt, has antimicrobial activity and has been used as a food preservative throughout human history. It can be used as an herbicide, desiccant, and defoliant, making it a versatile option for natural pest control. Its pesticidal uses are many, including antimicrobial, bactericide, fungicide, insecticide, herbicide, desiccant, and defoliant. Registered products that contain sodium chloride do not pose an unreasonable risk.
