Dengue: The Power of Peppermint

In the previous articles, I have discussed ways to prevent mosquitoes from attacking, alternatives to regular mosquito repellents and also how you can protect your family and yourself at home.

In this article, I will be talking about Peppermint oil. This oil is the ultimate mosquito repellent. Its strong and fresh minty scent is the bane of existence for mosquitoes. They simply hate it. This is why it is an amazing ingredient for you to incorporate in your daily life. One whiff of this and the pesky little mosquitoes will never set foot in your home again.

Aside from deterring mosquitoes away, the strong scent is also an amazing larvae killer. It has larvicidal efficiency which means it kills mosquito larvae, and most importantly, Aedes mosquitoes.

If you have any stagnant water in your household, you can spray or diffuse Peppermint oil in order to kill the larvae before it has the chance to grow and make your home its breeding ground.

You can use Peppermint oil in a lot of ways. For yourself, you can use HYSSES Peppermint Massage Oil to lather on your skin so that the mosquitoes would not dare attack you. You can also use the oil in a candle burner or diffuser so that your entire house will be covered in Peppermint scent to keep away the mosquitoes.

But if you want an easier option, you can use a Room Spray and just spritz it in the various rooms at home. With the HYSSES Ginger Peppermint Room Spray, it has the refreshing minty scent of the Peppermint and also the smooth and energizing scent of the Ginger. Ginger is a good addition as it helps to ease symptoms of dengue fever, if any. It is great at calming down the body so that the fever would go down, as well as ease nausea and vomiting.

Now, whatever methods you prefer to incorporate this Peppermint oil, it will be sure to give you up to 3 hours of protection from mosquitoes. You can get your hands on the products at our eStore now!
