Natural repellents for ants, flies and mosquitoes

Herbs for the Home

Information from Andrea at Mai Co.

Do you ever have problems with ants, flies or moquitos, but dread having to use harmful chemicals and sprays? Help is at hand in the form of herbs!

Ants:

According to the lovely Andrea at Mai Co (find them at www.shoporganic.co.za/maico) solving ones ant problem is a simple matter of brewing up some strong catnip tea, and spraying the area you would like the ants to avoid. This brew will also work as a deterrent for aphids.

Petition to ban Agent Orange GM Maize in South Africa

I received the following from Liesl at Biodynamic Agricultural Association of Southern Africa recently:

Mother Theresa said that one should be FOR something, not AGAINST. Consider the quality of the energy when you resist, as opposed to supporting the positive alternative. I got the link in the email copied below from about 25 people over the last 2 days. Consumers are becoming aware and taking action. I would like to share my faith in and excitement about solutions manifesting just beyond our reality. I received an enquiry for 34 tons of organic, non-gmo maize on Monday. Let us support the positive alternative. Let's create GMO-free zones. Like an ink blot on wet paper, it spreads. But it starts with you, the grower and you the consumer.

Great attitude! Petition and article follow below.

Mineral Make Up

Mineral Make-Up, the natural option?

As someone with sensitive skin, I am always interested in products which promise not to disturb its delicate balance. When it comes to make up, foundation especially can be a problem, so much so, that mostly I opt to go without. However, there are those days when one just wants to glam it up a bit, that’s where mineral make up comes in!
