WINNIPEG, Canada, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Every summer, the bloodsuckers send Canadians swatting and running for cover.
And for good reason.
More than just creatures with an annoying buzz, mosquitoes inflict bites that hurt, itch and cause human flesh to swell and redden. An even more serious consequence of the mosquito bite: West Nile Virus.
While many Canadians warily use conventional bug repellents--ones with harsh and controversial chemicals that can sting eyes and irritate skin--there is now a new, natural, non-toxic and sweet-smelling product available to keep mosquitoes at bay.
Citronella Spray, manufactured by Pharm-Vet, a division of Dominion Veterinary Laboratories, contains a blend of pure essential oils including lavender oil from France, eucalyptus oil from Australia and citronella oil from Sri Lanka.
Dominion Vet's Citronella Spray, which was originally formulated as a bug spray for horses, provides soothing aromatherapy for humans and is gentle enough to use as a moisturizing spray for the skin and hair. More importantly to Canadians this summer, the refreshing lemon-mint scented spray safely wards off mosquitoes for up to one-hour at a time.
