According to WebMD, aromatherapy means using a plant’s aroma-producing oils to treat disease. There are different opinions on how effective aromatherapy is at curing or preventing illnesses, but there is no doubt about the power of fragrance. Smelling a particular aroma can transport you to a different time and place, such as the smell of fresh baked bread or an exotic type of incense. earthkind® Farmer in Charge, Kari Block, has found the perfect blend of aromas to repel rodents. Her love of natural solutions for natural problems also led her to create a line of all natural air fresheners.
After talking to some consultants from essential oil distributors, I was inspired to share with you some of the health benefits of the essential oils in our products.
Fresh Cab Natural Rodent Repellent (Balsam Fir oil): Aside from keeping rats and mice away, the warm aroma of balsam fir has been known to soothe and warm the body and create an uplifting sense of well-being.
