Psychedelic Hip-Hop to Engage Youth in Zika Virus Mosquito Repellent Urban Gardening Project

We need to cooperate on a 100% natural mosquito repellant like REI’s Jungle Juice (100 % DEET), a chemical warfare agent used in the Vietnam War but all natural and safe and peaceful. My plan is to get gardeners in Atlanta growing plants this spring for the most effective all natural permaculture based natural and effective Jungle Juice replacement. Because DEET is synthetic it is impossible for Natives of Brazil to afford and is impossible to distribute. I want to document my work on this, put it on a Net Neutral place accessible to people on, and raise money for solar energy projects. No more industrial chemistry, only natural chemistry. Interested?

I like that you are thinking about it in terms of production processes Brazilians can afford. Just wanting something “natural” instead of “industrial” kind of makes some people roll their eyes. But if you are trying to create a means of production that people can seize for themselves and not be beholden to globalized power, that gets interesting and solarpunk. What are your first steps?

I actually use ~ 25 whole cloves soaked in ~ 200 ml of rubbing alcohol for four days in a tightly sealed mason jar (shake it once a day). Then add a teaspoon of olive or apricot oil. Apply it every two to three hours to exposed skin. We have found it very effective.

They use burnt oranges (smoke) and neem trees (oil) in Ghana. What about all of these things together?…

May I know if planting a neem tree in itself acts as an insect repellant to its surroundings? I would like to know if it is enough to plant the neem tree

Enough garlic in diet: mosquito, flea & tick repellent! Antibiotic effect minus bad side effects as well.

Hemp oil? Legal?

Thank you for sharing these links.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
