How to get rid of parasites present in our environment thanks to geraniol, a plant-based substance?
Even though we spend at least a third of our lives in bed, few of us think about the safety and purity of our bedding. And although many press articles have been broadcast about the deplorable amount of harmful chemicals (1) allowed in bedding, there is still no awareness about the toxins hidden in the sheets! You read that right: sheets, duvets, pillows, mattress covers, etc. can all contain harmful chemicals that disrupt your health while you sleep. While it can be scary to read, the good news is that it only takes a little knowledge and common sense to find ideal solutions for you, your family.
Why worry about your bed linen?
With everything we need to think about when it comes to health, bed linen can seem like a very secondary priority. However, creating a safe haven during sleep is crucial, as this is when our body regenerates and draws its energy. Now imagine that you are doing everything you can to sleep well, maybe even that you have invested in a very good mattress, but you still have trouble sleeping and/or you wake up feeling tired or as if you need more sleep. Be aware that our skin absorbs the toxins with which it comes into contact (2). So when your skin is covered with chemically treated sheets while you sleep, your body is forced to fight these toxins night after night (2). Added to this are the chemicals or fragrances of the detergents you also breathe in and this explains why so many of us wake up exhausted. (4) And this, despite our best efforts to eat well, exercise, etc. So yes, if you wake up feeling less energetic, it may be because you need to look at your sheets.
Which treatment for a safer bedding?
Now that you have become aware of the disadvantages of chemical repellents and anti-insect or parasitic solutions on the market, you are surely wondering what is the green solution that would allow you to sleep better without the inconveniences associated with these small unwanted guests? Do you know geraniol?
Geraniol, derived from plants such as geraniums and lemongrass, is extracted from essential oils. This repellent of plant origin offers protection against mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, fleas, midges, ticks, mites and many other pests. Plants containing these active compounds have the natural ability to repel insects. (3) Geraniol is the main part of rose essential oil, palmarosa essential oil and lemongrass essential oil. It is also found in small amounts in geranium, lemon and many other essential oils. Geraniol has long been considered a revolutionary insect repellent ingredient. It therefore has multiple uses to discover.
