Every chicken coop and home should smell this heavenly!
The aromatic benefits from volatile oils in herbs are well documented for their ability to affect the mood and stress levels of both people and animals. The strong-smelling herbs in my Spruce the Coop Herbal Fusion are capable of repelling many insects that find the strong scents offensive. All of the herbs in this blend were selected based upon their aromatic properties, safety and/or ability to repel pests. While this herbal blend is not intended to be eaten, you can feel secure in the knowledge that all of these herbs are safe for chickens to ingest.
Use it any time in and around the chicken coop by sprinkling a small amount in the nest boxes, litter and dust bath areas. There is no concern about the possibility of mold or mildew from fresh herbs in nest boxes, which can occur from the heat and humidity of chickens sitting on them. Also wonderful for use in your home in a dish or at the base of your plants, etc.
A little goes a long way, use sparingly. Not recommended in brooders or with chicks due to their sensitive, developing respiratory systems, which can be easily irritated.
