Herbs For Controlling Pests

Are you ready to say goodbye to pests but you do not want the hassle or the exposure to toxic chemicals that most commercial products have? If you do not have access to a professional pest control company, such as Conquistador Pest & Termite, then get ready to use the following herbs. They are safe, beautiful, smell great and they will work at eliminating pests in and around your house.

Herbs for Pest Control:

You can use basil to control flies and mosquitoes. Either plant some in outdoor boxes or gardens where these pests tend to accumulate. They do not like the smell at all. They will avoid it and your house as much as they can. You can buy a ready-made plant if you need immediate help. Or, you can grow some and use it for cooking.

Another herb which you can use to eliminate mosquitoes is citronella. You may already be familiar with these candles which are fragrant and effective but the actual plant will also work. Buy it at a garden store and place it where it has room to grow and get lots of sun. It also needs room to drain.

A common herb used in aromatherapy is lavender. Use the plant itself to repel mosquitoes, flies, and fleas. Fleas can be a real pest and can cause allergic reactions to your pets as well as worms and other illnesses. Plant some lavender around the house and enjoy a flea-free life! Lavender survives in most any weather condition, too.

Rosemary is another herb you will want to have around for its pleasant fragrance and for any cooking you plan to do. You can grow it in containers or in the ground. Place it wherever you want to keep mosquitoes away. They especially do not like the smell of the oil coming from the rosemary.

Most any herb including oregano or thyme will also work to keep pests away. You can get the benefits of growing your own herbs all while keeping your home free of insects.


How Herbs Can Be Used In Dental Care

When it comes to good dental care, it is important to visit your dentist on a regular basis. However, besides going to the dentist, you need to practice good oral health. This includes brushing your teeth after meals, using mouthwash, flossing, avoiding sweets and foods that corrode the teeth etc. In addition to these typical dental care tips, you can also use specific herbs and natural ingredients to help care for your mouth and teeth.

If you suffer from bad breath or halitosis, then there are other solutions besides using mouth wash. You can create a herbal mouthwash that will make your breath smell significantly better. You will need one teaspoon of peppermint, rosemary and lavender. Simply mix the herbs together and put one teaspoon of the herb mix into a cup of boiling water. Allow the herbs to steep for at least 15 minutes and then strain it. Once the liquid is cool, you can then use it as a mouthwash.

Another option is to mix three tablespoons of angelica seeds into 2 cups of boiling water. Then, you can add peppermint, rosemary, caraway and lemon verbena. You can add a little bit of orris root if you want your breath to smell like violets. Allow the mixture to steep until the water is cool, then strain it and use it as a mouth wash.

If you’re suffering from a particularly bad tooth ache but can’t see a dentist, then you can use clove oil to ease the pain. However, be sure to be careful when applying the clove oil on the tooth and use a clean cotton ball to do so.

Another natural herb that can be used is lavender. Lavender oil has numerous skin healing properties as well as anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties. It is extremely effective when treating halitosis and can also provide a great deal of relief from mouth pain. The aroma of lavender also provides a sedative effect which helps to calm the nervous system. Stress has been attributed as one of the causes of gum disease and lavender is a powerful relaxant that can greatly reduce stress.

In closing, we have just looked at some of the various herbs that can be used for dental care. Do note that herbs should not be used as a replacement for the dentist or good oral hygiene. However, it is a great addition to your dental care, so be sure to learn more about how various herbs can benefit your dental health.

How To Lose Weight With Coffee and Herbs

Herbs and plant based consumable products, such as coffee, can also play a role in weight loss.

Coffee is a central nervous system stimulant which means is boosts brain function. But it also has some other properties that can help you lose weight. Many weight loss supplements contain caffeine, one of the main ingredients in coffee, due to these properties.

1. Appetite Suppressant

Coffee can suppress your appetite. Simply drinking a cup of coffee every time you have a food craving or get those hunger pangs although it isn’t meal time, can help reduce how much you eat. However, it is necessary to mention that the effect is not very long lasting and you may need quite a few cups a day in order for it to be effective.

2. Regular Bowel Movements

Good digestion is essential to losing and maintaining weight. Coffee stimulates bowel movements, keeps you regular and you may find the need to go after drinking your first cup in the morning.

3. Increased Metabolic Rate

The faster your metabolic rate, the quicker your body burns energy, preventing carbohydrates from becoming stored as fat. Caffeine stimulates metabolism thereby increasing metabolic rate. Exercising directly after drinking a cup of coffee will help you achieve better weight loss results.

4. Fat Burner

As a nervous system stimulant, caffeine signals fat cells in the body by producing epinephrine. Epinephrine is a hormone that is naturally produced by the body and is responsible for breaking down and eliminating fat cells in the body. This is another popular ingredient in many different weight loss supplements.

5. Antioxidant

Oxidation is a process that occurs in the body that results in the build-up of free radicals that occur from the toxins that accumulate in the body. Coffee has antioxidant properties that help eliminate these toxins from the body. Antioxidants should form an important part of any diet that is aimed at weight loss as well as increasing overall health and well-being.

There are some factors that must be taken into account when drinking coffee with weight loss in mind. Firstly, eliminate the sugar and the creamer as these can reduce the positive effects and can in fact result in weight gain.

Also invest in some high quality coffee. The best coffees have a higher caffeine content and are therefore more effective. You can also opt for other alternatives that have the same properties such as different types of tea (especially Green Tea) or use a dietary supplement that is high in caffeine.
