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 Internet.org, 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?
Enough garlic in diet: mosquito, flea & tick repellent! Antibiotic effect minus bad side effects as well.
Hemp oil? Legal?
