    I was reading an article this week of a lab study with cedar oil, they were getting knock down (eliminating) on adult mosquitoes at 0.44%, very small amounts of the stuff. We have it at 4% in our essential-1 I guess we are adding too much !!!!

    The lab is called "central institute of medicinal and aromatic plants" how would you like to work there. You would never have to buy one of those little pine trees and hang it from your rearview mirror
