Mosquitos play a big role in Aussies summers, especially for those who are lucky enough to live by the water. Luckily Kochii is a great natural mozzie repellent, apply topically with a carrier oil to deter mozzies. Additionally use the Kochii incense or Kochii candle to keep your space protected. If you happen to get bitten, Kochii’s natural anti-inflammatory properties help to heal your bites and reduce itching, simply dab neat Kochii on to a cotton wool bud and apply to the bite.
Kochii is one of the most effective ways to repel ticks, as they are deterred by cineole properties, and our oil has the highest cineole level available. Apply Kochii oil either with a carrier oil, or sunscreen. You can also apply a spray to hats, clothes and shoes for extra protection. (we sell bulk Kochii to farmers who use it as an all-natural tick control!)
Its known that rats stay clear of all eucalyptus plants, and that having eucalyptus scents around your home, garden and in your ceiling, prevents infestation. Simple apply neat Kochii oil to cotton wool buds and distribute throughout your home, garden and in your roof.
