Welcome to the world of Dr. Killigan's, where we marry nature's wisdom with modern living to create safe, effective home care solutions. Our latest offering, Cedar Ward, exemplifies this philosophy. At the heart of Cedar Ward is cedarwood oil, renowned for its natural protective and aromatic properties. Crafted as a non-toxic spray, our cedar oil spray harnesses the natural protective powers of cedarwood oil to safeguard every room of your house. Unlike traditional chemical repellents, which often contain hazardous compounds linked to respiratory issues and other health concerns, Cedar Ward offers a non-toxic alternative for every room in your house, ensuring the well-being of your family and pets.
In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the remarkable properties of Cedar Ward, showcasing how it elevates your home's ambiance while providing a robust shield against unwelcome insects. We will explore the unique attributes of cedarwood oil, the diverse applications of Cedar Ward in various household settings and how it aligns with our commitment to eco-friendly and health-conscious living.
The power of cedarwood oil: Nature's potent repellent
Cedarwood oil, the core ingredient of Dr. Killigan's Cedar Ward, serves a dual purpose: it is both an effective pest deterrent and a natural enhancer of your home's ambiance. This oil, meticulously extracted from Juniperus virginiana L., a species of juniper in the Cupressaceae family, is renowned for its potent, natural insect-repelling abilities.
What makes Cedar Ward particularly effective is its high concentration of cedarwood oil, standing at 20%, which is significantly higher than what's typically found in standard repellents. This concentration ensures that the spray is robust in warding off a variety of pests, such as clothing moths, pantry moths, cockroaches and silverfish, offering a safe and eco-friendly alternative to traditional, chemically-laden mothballs.
Moreover, the aromatic essence of cedarwood oil enriches your home with a calming, woodsy fragrance. It’s not just about pest control; this fragrance contributes to creating a tranquil and refreshing environment, thereby enhancing the overall ambiance of your home.
Our commitment extends beyond the product itself. The cedar used in our Cedar Planks is responsibly sourced from renewable forests in the USA. These planks are then carefully assembled and quality-assured in California, reflecting our dedication to sustainability and high-quality standards. This approach ensures that each use of Cedar Ward supports responsible forestry practices while transforming your home into a serene, pest-free sanctuary.
Cedar Ward: Essential protection in every space
Cedar Ward is primarily designed for use on bare, unsealed cedarwood, such as our specially crafted Cedar Planks.
Its versatility, however, goes beyond this primary use. By spraying Cedar Ward onto these planks and placing them strategically around your home – in wardrobes, kitchens and living areas – you can effectively leverage its insect-repelling properties. This cedar oil spray for home protection allows you to disperse the protective benefits of Cedar Ward throughout your home, ensuring that each room benefits from its natural, pest-repelling aroma and the refreshing scent of cedar. This method of pest control is particularly beneficial as it avoids the use of conventional sprays with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other chemicals that can contribute to indoor air pollution and pose health risks.
Cedar Ward's unique property of refreshing and deodorizing spaces truly enhances its value, transforming any area of your home into a more inviting and aromatic space. Additionally, its practical functionalities extend to maintaining a healthy indoor environment, as detailed in the following points:
- Absorb moisture: The cedarwood oil in Cedar Ward enhances the natural moisture-absorbing qualities of cedarwood. When applied to Cedar Planks, it amplifies the wood's inherent hygroscopic properties, allowing it to draw in and retain excess moisture from the environment. This capability, especially valuable in damp areas of your home, directly contributes to pest control. Many pests, including moths and silverfish, thrive in humid conditions. By reducing the ambient moisture, Cedar Ward creates an environment less hospitable to these pests, thereby aiding in their deterrence and contributing to a more comprehensive pest management strategy.
- Reduce mildew risks: By controlling indoor moisture levels, Cedar Ward minimizes the risk of mildew and mold development, which thrive in moist conditions. This drier environment, maintained by the enhanced moisture-absorbing capacity of Cedar Planks treated with Cedar Ward, not only prevents mildew but also deters various pests. Insects often seek out mold and mildew as food sources or breeding grounds. Therefore, maintaining a drier environment helps to disrupt the life cycle of these pests, making your home less inviting to them and reinforcing Cedar Ward's role as an effective natural pest repellent.
- Keep insects at bay: Cedar Ward's effectiveness in repelling insects stems from the natural properties of cedarwood oil. This oil contains compounds that are unappealing and repulsive to many types of insects. When insects encounter the scent of cedarwood oil, they are naturally deterred, making them less likely to inhabit or damage areas treated with Cedar Ward. This repellent action is particularly effective against clothing moths, which are known to damage natural fiber materials. By spraying Cedar Ward on Cedar Planks and placing them in areas prone to moth activity, the cedarwood oil creates a protective barrier. This barrier not only preserves the integrity of your clothing and linens but also ensures these materials remain free from the damaging effects of these pests.
