Natural Product for Pets and Humans Launches on Amazon: Herbal Warrior Flea, Tick & Mosquito Repellent Spray with Essential Oils

Savi Natural Products, a Company with a Green Conscience, has launched a multipurpose product designed for pets and people.

Natural Product for Pets and Humans Launches on Amazon: Herbal Warrior Flea, Tick & Mosquito Repellent Spray with Essential Oils
-- Savi Natural Products is a trusted green conscious manufacturer and marketer of an effective, eco-friendly solution to everyday problems. To meet the growing demand for non-toxic products safe for people, pets and planet, Herbal Warrior Flea, Tick & Mosquito Repellent 16.9oz Spray is now available to customers on Amazon at a discounted price of $14.96 – that’s 33,5% off the list price saving shoppers $7,54 for the next 3 days.

The antiseptic, antifungal, curative and calmative properties are just a few reasons why essential oils have been used for centuries in healing treatments, and are being used today by many people who prefer natural, biodegradable remedies that are not harmful to themselves or the earth. “I love that Herbal Warrior is natural and non-toxic because we use it around our animals and kids,” said Sumaya Laveatz (Switzerland), a customer using the product since last year.

Leading medical experts practicing with essential oils emphasize the importance of safe use, highlighting the principles of using only Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and diluting it, especially when applying on pets. Research also shows that a dog's and cat’s sense of smell is a thousand times more sensitive than that of a human’s and that a dog has more than 220 million and a cat more than 80 million olfactory receptors in their nose, while a human has only 5 million.

“Herbal Warrior was designed with all of this in mind, and the ratios and synergy of the Therapeutic Grade Lavender, Juniper, Thyme and Tea Tree Essential Oils, attenuated in filtered water, make this careful formulation effective and safe for everyday use on people and pets,” said Savi Natural spokesperson Jai Reddy. “It also enables users to spend more quality time engaging with their animals.” Amazon customer, Melissa Johnson (USA), says “I am highly sensitive to scents and this product makes me smile. It doesn't smell like any other... It’s fresh and gentle enough to use indoors and out.”

Herbal Warrior repels fleas, ticks and mosquitoes, it aids in the treatment of mild mange, insect bites, cuts and scratches (on people and pets), and safely kills flea larvae with repeated use. It can also substitute or compliment conventional treatments and it triples up as an odour neutralizer as well as a cool, refreshing Spritzer for those hot summer days.

Customers who want to take advantage of this special 33,5% launch offer ending on 23 March 2015 should go to and use the promotion code R3OWEQ4K. The product is manufactured in the USA, comes with a full money back guarantee and the company gladly invites reviews and feedback.

Teach Your Kids How To Compost

Teach Your Children Well...Err...To Compost
As spring is upon us and we begin to think about preparing our gardens, it may be worth considering composting. If you are already accustomed to composting then how about teaching others, like children, about it?

These days children are becoming enthusiastically involved in caring for our earth. This is being driven by education, these days children are being taught the importance of composting and how the results affect the earth. While many are not composting at home they are learning composting habits at their school where composting and recycling are enforced in the classroom.
Children as young as 18 months, and up to 5 years, are being introduced to recycling from Peppa Pig, a pig tv star whose adventures with family and friends demonstrate how easy the basics of composting are, and how it affects the environment. With children learning from a young age the importance of composting from the media it stands to reason that they will continue these practices as they grow
