How a flower makes a difference

Yesterday I received my September issue of Health magazine and while flipping through I found a two page ad of Earth Options by Raid. You know, the bug killing sprays used in homes, well apparently they have a new line that has more natural ingredients. In the ad there are two dried Chrysanthemums in the middle with a note explaining that they use a plant-based insecticide from these flowers called pyrethrum. SC Johnson has partnered with families in East Africa to grow these flowers for use in their products! This not only supports the families, but schools in these villages as well. I thought it was such a grand idea, I know that if I ever need a bug spray I will definitely check out these products.

Happy Saturday and have a wonderful weekend!
