Yesterday I sinned by using the chemical insecticide Malathion outside the home. Today is the day we spray the inside of the house… but this time this morning my sister in law and my wife called me to say we need something non-toxic. Good thing last night I blogged and made some research and saw the bit about Eucalyptus Oil, Clove oil and Oregano oil. The majority component I needed was eucalyptus oil. Luckily, eucalyptus oil was available at the local drug store. Not cheap, but affordable at 300 pesos for a 120 ml bottle of eucalyptus oil.
I’ve still got my stock of clove oil and some oregano oil. So put all three together in the sprayer and ta da… a great combo in theory. Our sprayer measured one gallon and we filled it with water. I placed 60 ml of eucalyptus oil, 3 dropper fulls of clove oil and 1 dropper full of oregano oil. My driver did the spraying as he has experience with spraying crops. Spraying a small house is chump easy. And we had a foldable ladder.
Spraying the combination of eucalyptus, clove and oregano oil with water turned out pleasant enough. Not so bad. Smelled like you came from the spa. Was it effective? I don’t know, we shall see tonight. I will sleep test in the house again tonight and make my report.
In the meantime, my son keeps putting on the virgin coconut oil plus clove oil plus oregano oil combination on his wounds and it does seem to be subsiding. Seems proof to me that the vestiges left on his skin is mange, or some sort of mite infestation. As are the rashes and itches I’ve been getting, our driver, and some visitors in the house.
This is probably the first and only time we have sprayed the house with anything from the inside. I hope it works.
