I like most creatures. But cockroaches, I have a problem with. Even thinking about them gives me a kind of icy chill… and reminds me of a certain day in the summer of 2001… gather closer friends, it’s story time.
My first ever experience with a roach was a little too close up and personal. I had just arrived in San Francisco from the UK and was staying in a friend’s converted warehouse-style apartment. I had never seen a roach before. I decided to take a shower, stripped off, got in the (tiny) shower and closed the shower curtain behind me. And there was this monstrosity in the shower with me….
The (gigantic) roach was half way up the shower curtain, about 6 inches away from certain sensitive areas of my anatomy. That’s WAY too close. Totally against the rules, dude.
I didn’t know if it was going to attack, or start flying around, or what. Needless to say, I kind of freaked out, tore the curtain open and got the heck out of there…
So you can imagine my delight at the recent discovery of an all-natural roach repellant recipe using essential oils! It’s very simple – and should act as a fine deterrent. Also, from my point of view, anything that sidesteps the use of toxic chemicals in the home is a good thing. I’m aiming for zero chemical pesticides (not easy!!), because I simply don’t trust them.
