No Pest starting about 25 years ago is a blend of steam distilled oils of Cayenne/Capsicum and Wild Oregano Oils.
TWO VERY HOT SPICES
They must be "diluted" for any use and they have "endless" uses "literally", with plants and all living creatures, including all mammals.
A 4 ounce bottle is "IDEAL", as long as you do not drop and break it---(if you drop things, then 1 ounce the better option)
No Pest is 1 endless possible essential oil combinations. Most commercial essential oils are subject to be synthetics---even the sellers most often are clueless if they are selling synthetics---the largest / most famous brands that sell those tiny bottles---but fancy machines to try to detect if they purchased bulk synthetic or real herb oils---but no machine exist that can prove to them if their product is genuine---or some mixtures of who knows what herbs or blend of synthetics..
AVERAGE steam distilled essential oils pretty much cost 1 standard price---that is 1 easy way to detect the "fakes", they price their essential oils based on what they "think" they can get out of any potential customer, based on popularity or what some new author wrote about this or that oil to create the next new market..
A 4 ounce dropper bottle is large enough to enable custom "blends"------a dropper of this or that, an ounce of the best, etc.etc,---what ever a person has read or seen or heard that makes them want to self-explore steam distilled essential oils of plants/trees...........
No Pest, Garlic, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Wild Oregano, Cade, Honeysuckle, or any blend of 30 steam distilled essential oils---are the same price---the only 2 options that are not are wormseed and wormwood, those 2 are so rare that they cost "double", because when you ask for rarity, that cost a company allot of problems to fill such orders-------all manufacturing relies on POPULARITY, so Frankincense and Myrrh cost the same as peppermint--------THAT IS A VERY EASY method to know if your essential oil supplier is a RIP OFF, if they ask more $$$$ for Frankincense and Myrrh, then you know they are rip offs...the expense is not the herbs, it is the collection and processing the herbs..............those that ask more for well known herbs---often do so because they believe they can get more out of their customer (victim). CORPORATIONS have been all consumed by gov...gov taxed them to death, so gov could buy them all up---that greed has "destroyed" the planet and extermination of families and family owned companies.....family is taxed to death---corporations have a license to steal, lie and pay zero taxation...they can use tax payers $$ to pay their shipping expenses--they are the gov.
When it comes to using steam distilled essential oils of herbs----it is a step up and beyond normal herbal use that the world based medicine on----but medicine 100 years ago, commonly used essential oils--it was just something common families had no access to or ability to produce for them selves. Steam Distilled Essential Oils (fats of the herb) can be put in the air to breath in as you sleep or live in your home------they are great for adding to salves. They are often diluted with 97% olive oil and then rubbed on the skin or taken by mouth by the drops. A 10% essential oil and 90% carrier oil would be considered super strength.
WILD OREGANO OIL
1 oz. Bottle 25 years ago cost $74.95 per ounce---created by a Canadian dr. Oregano Saved his life and his greed created his super strength bottle that was actually 90% olive oil and 10% oregano oil. His choice of oregano oil comes from Turkey----he never said where the oregano oil came from that saved his life and you can bet it was not 90% olive oil. HE was able to create the scam because he was a M.D., he wrote a book---those 2 things enable the educated to ask as much $$$ as they can get. HE MADE MILLIONS and built a business that he then wrote faked books promoting every essential oil he could advertise .............
Based on the Canadian rip off----a quart of pure Oregano Oil made his way---he sold for $35,000.00 20+ years ago....he gets about 1/2 that today.
The Commercial markets are how much can they gouge their customers--they look for 1 x customers, because they have millions to reach out to via the internet and their books.
A 4 OUNCE DROPPER BOTTLE is an ideal size when making special blends------------and those tiny commercial bottles of synthetic essential oils with those tiny holes that you drip a drop out at a time---those are just "embarrassing" ---the thick oils must be diluted so they will drip out the hole.
A 4 ounce pure would make a Canadian 40 ounces of super strength. 10% essential oil and 90% olive oil. That is too strong for most all people, so 3% essential oil and 97% olive oil would be better-----------
3% NO PEST, I am sure would be too strong for most all people to take by mouth---unless they have been taking oregano and cayenne oil for many years. I put a dropper daily in a water tank that cows drink out of and the oils float around on top of cold water----but the cows get it on their lips and tongues and seem to never care---when it comes to cayenne----animals often are not affected like humans are----no one told them in advance that the cayenne will burn their tongue----
When adding 30 essential oils to NO PEST, as an animal de-wormer, the amish discovered their goats do well on it-------They never tried the same theory with out the cayenne.
IF a human was to try NO PEST, I would think 1/8 of a drop daily, well diluted would be a starting point and after 10 years, maybe 1-2 drops total in a day would be max.....making an 4 ounce bottle basically a lifetime supply for a normal human.
