Hello. I'm Louise Hodges with GreenBugAllNatural.com. What we're here to talk about today is a solution that you can use that is a pest control for infants. If you don't have access to essential oils, one of your options could be Green Bug for People. The active ingredient in this is cedar oil which is a great product to use and it's safe enough to use on infants. And this is something that you can actually purchase. Let's say that you'd like to make your very own pest control product for infants. We're going to talk about that now and these are the ingredients that you would need. First you'll need an empty spray bottle that you can get at any hardware store or a grocery store, whatever. I've got a cup of water, I have a funnel in order to mix my ingredients, and I have got the essential oil of peppermint and the essential oil of lemon grass. Both of these are food grade safe and that is exceptionally important that you have food grade safe ingredients when you're making something for infants. So the first thing I'll do is take the top off. I'm going to pour the essential oils in first and that way when I pour the water in it'll help make sure that anything in the funnel will go into the container. Of course when you're dealing with infants a great thing to do if you're outside is make sure they're covered up to keep the bugs away. But these essential oils, once again as long they're food grade safe are OK to use on infants. So then you just shake it up and you can spray away. But make sure that you use products that are very safe, food grade safe and whenever you use it just mix it up before you go. I'm Louise Hodges with GreenBugAllNatural.com and now we've talked about how to make your own infant pest control product.
