Mosquitos transmit parasites

Did you know that mosquitoes have killed more humans than any other creature that’s ever existed?

When most people think of the diseases spread by mosquitos, they think of yellow fever, dengue fever, malaria, west nile virus, zika & encephalitis… but mosquitoes can transmit more than that. They can transmit other microscopic parasites, viruses, actual worm eggs and bacteria like Lyme disease & the Lyme coinfections Bartonella and Babesia.

Some mosquitos are able to lay eggs inside you where the larva can hatch & wreak havoc.

And this isn’t contained to warmer climates like Africa or South America… it happens in the U.S. as well.

Protect yourself by investing in some natural bug repellent & place lavender and citronella in your yard. Treat bug bites topically with a natural skin salve that contains antiparasitic essential oils like lavender, citronella & eucalyptus.

If you're in a situation where you've gotten lots of bug bites, I would consider parasite cleansing.
