Winnipeg Veterinary Company Pharm-Vet Produces Essential Oil-Infused Mosquito Spray That's a Welcome and Safe Alternative to Controversial Deet-Based Repellants

    WINNIPEG, Canada, June 30 /CNW/ -- Every summer, the bloodsuckers send
Canadians swatting and running for cover.

    And for good reason.

    More than just creatures with an annoying buzz, mosquitoes inflict bites
that hurt, itch and cause human flesh to swell and redden. An even more
serious consequence of the mosquito bite: West Nile Virus.

    While many Canadians warily use conventional bug repellents--ones with
harsh and controversial chemicals that can sting eyes and irritate skin--there
is now a new, natural, non-toxic and sweet-smelling product available to keep
mosquitoes at bay.

    Citronella Spray, manufactured by Pharm-Vet, a division of Dominion
Veterinary Laboratories, contains a blend of pure essential oils including
lavender oil from France, eucalyptus oil from Australia and citronella oil
from Sri Lanka.

    Dominion Vet's Citronella Spray, which was originally formulated as a bug
spray for horses, provides soothing aromatherapy for humans and is gentle
enough to use as a moisturizing spray for the skin and hair. More importantly
to Canadians this summer, the refreshing lemon-mint scented spray safely wards
off mosquitoes for up to one-hour at a time.
