Eucalyptus oil is antibacterial and anti-fungal, removes oil based stains and sticky things, acts as a penetrating oil, as well as having medicinal properties. Therefore is an ideal natural product for in and around the house, in the workshop and for the body. One of our most popular is our cat deterrent. Please read on for more information including the recipe.

CAT DETERRENT

Even the most ardent cat lovers don’t appreciate the smell of cat urine indoors or outdoors. Cats who use flower beds as a litter box present an even more serious problem. While it’s difficult to convince cats to do anything they don’t want to do, you can make homemade cat repellent that may convince cats to take their business elsewhere. Homemade cat spray is safe and environmentally friendly.

Here is a few ideas to keep them at bay from areas you don’t want them:

Eucalyptus and Lemon may be the very essence of freshness to humans, but to animals, especially cats, it’s off-putting. Cats have 40 times the number of odor-sensitive cells in their noses as humans, according to PetPlace. Because of their superior smelling abilities, they are sensitive to citrus-based products and Eucalyptus oil. Eucalyptus oil is used as a deterrent for numerous animals, among them fleas, mosquitoes, mice and rats and — and you guessed it — cats. Use both of these natural repellents to your advantage.

Recipe

  • 600ml of water into a 1lt spray bottle
  • 400ml of vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • the zest of one lemon
  • 20 drops Emu Ridge eucalyptus oil.
  • Shake and spray where you would like cats to avoid. It does a great job!

This method not only helps deter your cat from destroying furniture or walls, but gives your a house a beautiful clean fresh smell as well!

You can also Soak a cotton bud or ball in Eucalyptus oil and put it in the pot plants that they like to keep them away and pop them any other areas that are off-limits to cats.

Even some oil on a tissue in the vents of your car another favorite spot for cats to mark their territory, will help keep them away!

Another Handy Hint:

Indoors – Cats dislike water and the prospect of getting wet. Indoors, if you catch your cat approaching an area you want to keep him out of like scratching furniture, give him a quick spritz of water from a spray bottle. Repeat this process until he doesn’t return to the area again. The spray can also be applied to a cloth and wiped onto specific spots.

Outdoors

For outdoor areas, you can purchase an automatic sprinkler attached to a motion sensor and place it in your garden. These sprinklers spray cats who approach an off-limits area with a harmless burst of water, discouraging them from coming back.

Secure you rubbish

Coffee grounds mixed with citrus peels

Certain plants when planted around your garden beds work as a repellent for cats to, ask you local plant nursery.

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil

This unique oil is the only one of it’s kind in the world. It is distilled from the leaf of the Kangaroo Island Narrow Leaf Mallee (Eucalyptus cneorifolia). Emu Ridge is the only commercial Eucalyptus Distillery remaining in South Australia.
Distillation of the oil began in the 1880’s and dozens of stills were established, making it one of the Island’s major industries.
One company, F.H.Faulding & Co purchased Emu Ridge in 1923, establishing two plantations in 1938 for the purpose of systematically harvesting it on a rotational basis. (The Narrow Leaf responds well to pruning.) Most success, however, was achieved by individuals who set up stills as a seasonal sideline.
Our oil is distilled in the traditional method at Emu Ridge. The leaf is placed into a pot containing water, beneath which a fire is lit, steam carrying the oil is passed through a system of cooling pipes, the oil separates and is piped off into containers. The raw oil undergoes another refining process to produce the final product crystal clear oil.
Native farming is far better for our environment, no sprays and chemicals, a great renewable resource and natural product.

SOME USES FOR THIS VERSATILE & 100% NATURAL OIL

  • In and around the house:
  • A disinfectant for cleaning floors, toilets etc
  • A deodorizer, a spot & stain remover, e.g. soiled clothing, anything sticky, stickers, chewing gum, paint & ink marks.
  • Cleans bathroom tiles, brass, ovens, plastic & vinyl. For washing woolens & clothing.
  • The Body: For cuts, burns and abrasions, the oil is a natural antiseptic, acne, relieves insect bites, is an insect repellent, soothes muscular aches & pains, a mouthwash, hand & skin cleaner, training oil, in the bath for a feeling of wellbeing, a decongestant for colds and flu by vaporization, inhalation or embrocation, for sore throats, (adults a few drops with a teaspoon of honey).
  • In the workshop: Cleans paint brushes, removes tar & stains & is a penetrating oil for any seized or rusted parts.
    Animals: For cleaning pets, removing fleas and ticks.

Meet Elise from France

Heres a bit about Elise –

Hi Im a 25 year old french girl living in the Alps in winter and in the South west in summer.
I Love travelling, discovering new cultures, people, and ways of living,… I’ve mostly traveled in European countries. I moved in Australia in January on the Gold Coast.
I Did some jobs to make money and then went on a road trip on the east coast (Cape Tribulation to Sydney)
I then Volunteered on a project with the Ploggathon team to clean the rubbish from beautiful Kangaroo Island.
I love the nature and doing outdoor activities/sport (surf, hike, ski, swim…) that’s why it’s really important for me to take care of our planet.
I prefer to buy my product from little producers rather than big companies and supermarkets, i’m trying to reduce more and more of my plastic consumption, eating mores plant and vegetables rather than animal products, using natural beauty products without chemicals.
We really need to change our consumption behavior. I feel really lucky to live on our planet, there is so many things to discover. We have to take care of of our planet by supporting little business like yours (the Emu Ridge Eucalyptus oil distillery) who is making natural products thanks to the nature. With your products you are the example that natural products work and are efficient !! Good job and let’s continue in this way ?

Ive tried many brands of Shampoo Bars in my travels but the Emu Ridge Brand that I found on Kangaroo Island is the best I have found! I love it, you can see I have long thick wavy hair and it works so well and goes such a long way and no plastic!

How did Father’s Day begin?

In 1909, a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd decided to create an official Father’s Day after listening to Anna Jarvis (an American woman who created Mother’s Day) giving a Mother’s Day sermon at church.

Dodd was a true believer in Father’s Day because she loved her father, William Jackson Smart who raised his six children by himself.

Dodd first suggested that the date of Father’s Day could be on her father’s birthday, 5 June. However, the first ever Father’s Day ended up being celebrated on the third Sunday of June, 19 June 1910.

Makers of ties, socks, hats, golf clubs and other gifts used Father’s Day to sell their product as the perfect Father’s Day gift (and still do today!).

Father’s Day around the world

Father’s Day is celebrated on different days of the year by different countries. Some countries celebrate in June, while others celebrate in March or September.

Father’s Day in Australia

In Australia, Father’s Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of September. On this day we celebrate the love and dedication of fathers, step-fathers, guardians, fathers-in-law, uncles and grandfathers and thank them for being our teacher, carer, friend and role model.

Germany

In Germany, Father’s Day is the same day as Ascension Day, which is a public holiday on the Thursday, 40 days after Easter. For this reason, the day is sometimes also known as Vatertag meaning ‘Father’s Day’ or Maennertagor Herrentag meaning ‘Men’s Day’. Traditionally, men go on walks through fields, pulling wagons and praying for a good harvest.

Italy

In Italy, Roman Catholics celebrate fathers on Saint Joseph’s Day which is 19 March. This day is celebrated with a traditional feast of bread, soup, macaroni, stuffed artichokes and a Saint Joseph’s Sfinge (a cream puff filled with ricotta, topped with fruit such as cherries and orange).

Thailand

In Thailand, Father’s Day is the same day as the King’s birthday. On this day, Thai people give a Canna flower (‘Dok put ta ruk sa’ in Thai) to their fathers or grandfathers and wear yellow (the King’s colour). There are religious ceremonies all over Thailand and at night there are fireworks and celebrations in the street.

 

DIY Foot and Shoe Odor

Smelly Stinky Shoes be gone!

The stench of stinky shoes can be overwhelming and make you want to throw them away. Heres a few great tips to remove and prevent the odors for someone with stinky shoes!

  • My personal favorite -Baking soda is awesome. Mix some baking soda, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree oil together and pop it into some old cotton socks. Baking soda its great for absorbing odors, seal with a rubber band. leave the socks in your shoes when your not wearing them. Ive heard kitty litter can be used the same way.

 

  • Just pop in some Tea Bags and leave overnight!

 

  • To make the teabags even more efficient add a few drops of Tea Tree or Eucalyptus oil, you can also wipe the insides of your shoes on a regular basis to kill the bacteria that causes the odour.

 

  • Here’s another tip, its an old wives tale but apparently it works. Stuff the shoes with newspaper. That’s right. Newspaper it will absorb the odor! Leave over night and your shoes should be “stink-free” come morning!

 

  • Dryer sheets with a few drops of Eucalyptus oil will absorb the odors. Tear them in half and leave in your shoes when you not wearing them.

 

  • If you can, wash them, pop them  in the washing machine add a teaspoon of Eucalyptus Oil with normal washing detergent and then dry them completely. From then on use the above tips and they will never stink again!!

Here is a couple of recipes to help you as well:

Homemade Shoe Deodorizing Powder

The dry ingredients in this homemade deodorizing powder are odor absorbing, and the tea tree oil’s antiseptic properties help the kill bacteria that cause smelly shoes. Dump out the dust before wearing your shoes.

Ingredients

4 tablespoons baking soda
1 tablespoon cornstarch
4 drops of Eucalyptus Oil and 4 drops of Tea Tree Oil

Directions

1. Shake or stir until thoroughly mixed.

2. Sprinkle shoe deodorizing powder  into your shoes after each time you wear them and let it sit overnight. (You might want to keep a shaker can of this mixture in the laundry room for regular use.)

3. Shake the powder out before wearing.

Homemade Shoe Deodorizing Spray

Some people swear by deodorizing smelly shoes with Febreze after each wear. If you don’t have skin allergies or sensitivities to corn, that’s worth a try. Here’s a homemade, all-natural shoe deodorizing spray if you’d rather DIY it.

Ingredients

1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white vinegar
4 drops of Eucalyptus oil and 4 drops of Tea Tree oil

Let me know your favorite or the one that works best for you, we would love to hear from you!

Directions

1. Lightly spray the shoe insoles after each wearing.
2. Let your shoes air dry.

How to keep mice out of the house Eucalyptus Oil is a mouse Deterrent

Essential oils provide a natural and effective means of pest control. Animals and insects don’t like the smell of Eucalytpus Oil, its a great deterrent!

Here are some simple tips on how keep mice and rodents away with our Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil.

  • Emu Ridge eucalyptus essential oil dipped cotton balls, place in the corners of the room.

  • Wipe Eucalyptus oil across door ways to stop them from coming inside.

  • Burn it in your house in an oil burner.

  • Pop some oil diffusers around.

  •  Mix up this spray so that you can spray areas you think they maybe living. Combine two teaspoons of eucalyptus oil with one cup of water and then add a few drops of dish detergent this only helps the ingredients mix better.  Shake it all together in a spray bottle and apply the mixture any place that you have or suspect you have mice. Reapply the spray as the scent fades, usually after about a week.

A great deterrent for not only mice but insects to. They don’t like the smell! You do need to do it regularly as Eucalyptus Oil does evaporate over time.

Vintage Car Fans – My recipe book also has a post given to me years ago. Vintage car owners soak a cotton ball with Eucalyptus oil and put it in the upholstery doors to protect the cars from rodents. Vintage cars are not sealed like the modern cars these days. Another Eucalyptus oil tip, its a great penetrene oil so was used to loosen nuts and bolts and they used to put a capful of eucalyptus oil in the radiator as well.

Home-made Mouse Trap

If you have some annoying mice around and some time to spare this is an awesome mouse trap that is simple to make. You can easily try this at home to help solve your mice problems.

An interesting read:

Here is some of an extract of research being done with Eucalyptus oil deterring rodents. Full story here.

Rodent repellents are chemicals which by taste or odour or possibly by both will prevent animal from feeding or gnawing. Such substances may be used in protecting an area from rodent infestation or in protecting packaged food, packing materials, electric cables, and other important vulnerable materials. Mature and healthy house rat, Rattus rattus of both sexes, was exposed to 5, 10, and 20% eucalyptus oil applied as spray in laboratory pens in bichoice tests. Each concentration was applied through three different modes of application, that is, daily, once, and alternatively in a week. Repellent effect of the oil was assessed based on food consumption from treated and untreated sides for four days. In overall, food consumption was significantly () low from treatment side compared to the untreated side indicating significant repellent effect of the oil at all the three concentrations tested. Repellent effect of the oil was, however, not found to differ significantly between the two sexes. Percent repellency in both male and female rats was apparently more with daily application of 5 and 10% eucalyptus oil. Present studies reveal the potential of eucalyptus oil in repelling away R. rattus; however, further studies may be conducted to enhance the persistence of repellent effect for longer period of time.

During the present studies, significant differences were found in mean daily food consumption from treatment and untreated sides at different modes of application and at different concentrations of the oil between male and female rats. This may be due to the sex specific variation in response to R. rattus towards the oil. Similar sex specific differences in response to R. rattus of two sexes towards toxic baits were reported by Kaur et al. [31]. During the present studies, higher standard deviation values than mean values of food consumption were observed in some cases which may be due to individual variation in response shown by rats of different species [32].

In overall, no significant difference in repellent effects of oil applied as spray was found between the two sexes and among the three concentrations of the oil tested during the present studies. All the three concentrations were equally effective and the repellency was highest when the oil was applied daily. The cost of spraying 5% eucalyptus oil (the minimum effective concentration) per 1 m2 area comes out to be Indian Rs 10 (US $ 0.17), which can be considered cost effective if we keep in view the extent of loss caused by R. rattus through damage and contamination of food. Among the various components of eucalyptus oil, 1, 8-cineole is the most important one largely responsible for a variety of its pesticidal properties [29]. The presence of this essential oil also provides defense advantage to eucalyptus leaves against herbivory and attack by harmful insects [33]. The present study is the first of its kind evaluating repellent potential of eucalyptus oil against vertebrate pests. Previous to this, repellency of eucalyptus oil has been recorded against the tick, Ixodes ricinus [34] and against acaricide-resistant mites [35]. Application of 1.0% concentration of 1, 8 cineole reduced oviposition rate of Thrips tabaci by 30–50% as compared to untreated controls [36]. Eucalyptus oil (1%) added to sugar syrup, repelled honey bees [37]. Eucalyptus oil (2%) on filter paper and wood floor repelled termites [38]. Eucalyptus oil can also protect plants against rice weevils, pine processionary moths, and mushroom flies [28]. Essential oils of eucalyptus appear particularly potent as mosquito repellents [39].

Since eucalyptus oil possesses a wide spectrum of biological activity and is regarded as safer compounds, there have been attempts to commercialize and market the insecticides/repellent products containing eucalyptus oil as such or based upon them. Quwenling is a eucalyptus-based product that has been successfully marketed as an insect-repellent in China [40]. It provides protection against Anopheles mosquitoes parallel to DEET and has, in fact, replaced the widely used synthetic repellent, dimethyl phthalate.

5. Conclusion

The present studies reveal the potential of eucalyptus oil applied as spray in repelling away R. rattus of both sexes. Percent repellency was more when the oil was applied daily and alternatively as compared to when applied once a week indicating low persistence of the repellent effect due to volatile nature of the oil. Further studies may be conducted to prepare formulations of the oil leading to slow release of the oil so as to increase its persistence for a longer period of time.

Mice are generally looking for food or a place to nest, so make sure you don’t have anything in your garage or home to tempt them.  Keep your woodpiles outside of the garage as well as your garbage cans.  Garbage cans in the house should be covered and obviously not kept around long.

Block any holes around pipes or other places bigger than one-quarter inch across, since mice will sneak in through the tiniest of spaces. An easy way to block access is by stuffing cracks and holes full of steel wool.
