(NaturalNews) After a decade of research, scientists recently relayed at a major U.S. conference that the insecticidal properties of rosemary, thyme, clove and mint show great promise for the agriculture industry. Some of these herbal pesticides kill the bugs, while others repel them. In either case, the natural pesticides are being made by adding small amounts of the herb's essential oils to water and then spraying them on the plant. Often the oils of two or four herbs are mixed together.

This bright news comes on the heels of recent reports that household pesticides may be the reason so many children these days are being diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. And let's be clear, people don't even put household pesticides in their mouths, as is common with agricultural pesticides. http://www.naturalnews.com/026873_pesticides...

These herbal pesticides are currently being effectively used by farmers to protect organic strawberry, tomato and spinach crops against the destruction from mites and aphids, according to Dr Murray Isman, University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, and the leader of the study.

The good news is these plant-based pesticides are natural and they don't involve putting any man-made chemicals on your food. Plus, insects are much less likely to develop resistance to them and they're safer for the people who work on the farms. When resistance develops with conventional chemical-based pesticides, often the solution is simply to spray more of those toxic chemicals on your favorite foods, or use even harsher chemicals.

Because these solutions are plant-based, they don't require extensive regulatory approval and are therefore immediately available for organic farmers, and even non-organic farms, who want to make a positive switch to protect our earth, our food, their workers, and their customers.

The only downside is that these natural pesticides can evaporate in the sun and they may need to be applied more often; their effects last a shorter period of time compared to chemical-based pesticides.

However, the fact that they don't remain on your food for a long time, even if they are plant-based and the essential oils are also used as flavorings in foods, should be seen as a plus for anyone who puts them in their mouths. And the fact that man-made chemicals linger is concerning.

These herbal solutions are also showing themselves to be effective for controlling bugs inside the home - like mosquitoes, fleas and roaches. They provide a pleasant spicy-scent, and many use the same essential oils found in aromatherapy products, like clove, cinnamon, and peppermint.

In fact, they've already developed a flea-repellent for dogs and cats that doesn't harm your pet. Researchers are now exploring the possibility of using the herbal formulas to kill E. coli and Salmonella on crops, as well.

About the author

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.

Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them.
Here's a little from the upcoming book...
In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters.
A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them."
Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them.
In Numbers 1:1 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old.
In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name.
Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased...
In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean.
