Guess what?! SimplyForties is one year old! To help me celebrate, EcoSMART has teamed up with SimplyForties for my first-ever giveaway!
EcoSMART’s products are both kid and pet-friendly and most importantly, are non-toxic. According to their information, EcoSMART was the first company to apply modern science to essential plant oils — creating the first 100% safe pesticides. Their products are based on the natural defenses that plants and trees have used for their self protection against insects and pathogens for millennia - essential oils.
According to EcoSMART, university research has shown that these oils attack octopamine neuro-receptors. Octopamine is a key insect neurotransmitter that regulates insect movement, behavior and metabolism. The blockage of the receptor activity prevents the transmission of the octopamine signals, knocking down and killing pests as well as repelling future pests including cockroaches, ants, dust mites, flies, wasps, spiders, crickets, and fleas and fruit flies. Their blends of natural plant oils are every bit as effective as synthetic chemicals, killing bugs fast without any toxins or harmful residues.
EcoSMART has a mosquito repellent that reportedly, “keeps bugs away for hours and is safe for the entire family. Our powerful, all-natural formula is made from organic plant oils, and repels mosquitoes, ticks, gnats and other annoying pests for hours”. Sounds pretty good!
In addition to checking out EcoSMART products, check out their organic insecticde blog. Leave a comment over there and you might become a product tester!
So, back to the giveaway; leave a comment on any SimplyForties post this week, and/or Twitter about the giveaway with @SimplyForties in there somewhere and you might win a great bundle of products from EcoSMART. I’ll give one entry for each comment (one comment per person per post will be counted, starting with Sunday’s post and ending Saturday the 5th), and one for each Tweet with @simplyforties and a link to my blog starting today and running through Saturday, September 5th. I'll also give an entry for any new subscriptions to my blog between today and the 5th. I’ll use a random number generator to select the winner, who I will announce next Monday, September 7th, and who will receive their product bundle directly from EcoSMART.
End of the summer bugs getting you down? Help me celebrate my blogiversary this week, and you might win some EcoSMART insect repelling products! It’s a win-win!
