EcoSmart Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Stacy. Winner of the flying insect repellent.

Recently I was asked to try some organic insecticides from a company called EcoSMART. This was actually perfect timing because we were going through a bit of a heat wave and the ants were starting to look for shelter, in our garage.

EcoSMART is an organic pesticide and natural insect repellent company which carries non-toxic products that are both child and pet friendly.

EcoSMART products are based on the natural defenses that plants and trees have used for their self protection against insects and pathogens for millenia - essential oils.
Since EcoSMART’s proprietary botanical oil blends attack attributes that are specific only to pests, they do not effect people, pets or the environment.

The primary active ingredients in EcoSMART products are approved as Direct Food Additives or classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

These oils are commonly used to add flavor and aroma to many cosmetic, beverage and food products, including cake, candy, sweetener, gum, soft drinks, and lipstick. Children and pets are safe. No need to clear them out after application or be concerned if they are near our products. EcoSMART products have no adverse effect on mammals, birds, and fish and also will not contaminate water sources.

Why are EcoSMART's Botanical Products A Better Choice:
  • Targets Insects: Not People or the Environment

  • Made from organic plant oils

  • Safe to use around children and pets

  • No pesticide residue

  • Unprecedented Margin of Safety

  • Extremely Effective Against a Broad Spectrum of Insect Pests

  • No Known Pest Resistance Issues

  • Cost Effective and Easy-To-Use Versus Conventional Products

  • Performance Comparable to Conventional Products

  • Naturally safe and effective

Some other note worthy features:

  • Has a pleasant natural scent

  • Can is recyclable

  • Made in the USA

  • Contains ingredients such as peppermint oil, wintergreen oil, mineral oil, and canola oil

  • No CFCs

  • Is still an insecticide so good safety and storage practices should be followed

I learned they have NO Toxic Residue
, all of our products leave no toxic residue and pose no exposure risk. This means that after the pest control is done, our products will not pollute ground water sources with harmful chemical residue.
I would love to try the Insect Repellent.

I would like to try the insect repellent and I heard it is safe to use around kids

James H said...

Safe around kids? I'm assuming then that its also safe around pets. Sa-weet!

What a great giveaway!

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for bringing this company to my attention. We were just talking the other night about tring to get rid of the mosquitoes in our yard without using toxic chemicals. I love that these products are affordable!

I found the way the products work very interesting.

I would use all the products, but I would get the most use out of the insect repellant.

amanda said...

I learned that Ecosmart is backed by 15 yrs of scientific research and numerous patents.

I would LOVE to try the garden insect killer.

Royal Ranch said...

Hi-what wonderful products. I am very impressed with the ability to use this around animals. Running a ranch in an "organic" fashion is difficult to do when there are so many flies! I was tempted to buy the combo pack. If I win, I'd be interested in the flying insect repellent. Thanks for this review.

I learned that ecoSMART is the first insect killer that is totally organic. I would love to try the insect repellent. Bugs can be brutal in the summer!

Ryan said...

I learned it's just as effective as conventional, more toxic bug spray.
I'd love to try the flying insect killer.

great giveaway

kca10 said...

I learned from their blog that keeping your home clean is the one of the keys to preventing pests.

I'd want the repellent since I go camping and hiking a lot.

Nina said...

I love the fact that they don't use all those chemicals. it makes me feel so much safer.

God is Green said...

If only every company had the gumption to not only give away sweet stuff like this, but to go completely GREEN!

wigget said...

i learned EcoSMART was the first company to apply modern science to essential plant oils and i'd like the Insect Repellent

Rob said...

I think it's great that there is a company out there which actually cares for making environmentally and human friendly products in a sustainable fashion. There is hope, after all! And I'm definitely down for this give-away.

This looks awesome! I'm always looking for ways to reduce the amount of toxic stuff that is getting absorbed into my skin, I'd love to try the insect repellent. Green Home is running a special this week on patches & pet tags that repel insects naturally, I'm on their newsletter list look at the right side of www.greenhome.com

Stacy said...

I learned that it is possible to isolate the killing to insects due to attackign them thru thier unique from us and other mammals "adrenaline". Very cool. I love it.

my first choice would be the flying insect killer. we like to leave the doors open when the weather is good, which means way too many bugs!

This product kills bugs instantly and gives off a peppermint odor, but the smell is way too strong. My cat avoids any room that this is sprayed in and the overpowering peppermint smell that lasts all day, makes my stomach uneasy.

It does what it's supposed to and I'm grateful that it's organic, but this is the strongest smelling pest killer I have ever used.

Over Coffee - the green edition said...

That is a good point D! I don’t mind the smell of peppermint but for those that do, this is a pretty powerful smell!
