Are you a gardener? Do you aspire to be a gardener? Whichever you happen to be, there are some basics that apply to everyone during the various stages of their gardening journey.
Many garden products and sprays are loaded with harsh chemicals. There are safer alternatives for you and your plants.
Before you go to the garden or engage in any outdoor activity make sure you apply sunscreen. When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it makes Vitamin D which is hugely beneficial. However, overexposure to the sun can lead to burned skin, wrinkles, eye injuries, and even skin cancer.
Be sure you protect your skin with a chemical free sunscreen. Not sure where to find one? Contact me.
You can use insecticides or sprays made with harsh chemicals, but they can lead to an accumulation of toxins in your body that may be linked to chronic illness and disease.
Encourage pollinators to visit your garden with an essential oils spray. Spritz it on the flower buds.
I always have one of these roller bottles on hand to use after garden work or any type of strenuous exercise.
Lavender is an oil every gardener should have! It may help cleanse and soothe minor skin irritations including sun exposure.
