‘Tis the season for the great outdoors!  Whether you are going hiking or camping, having a backyard barbeque with your friends and family or taking a picnic to the park, make sure to protect yourself from those nefarious mosquitoes.  Three Rivers Market has everything that you need to create your own DIY insect repellent in Aisle 2.

Lemon eucalyptus (Corymbia citriodora) is a tree that is native to Australia.   The leaves of this tree have a lemony scent and contain a compound called menthoglycol that has been shown to be very effective at repelling mosquitoes.

In a spray bottle, just mix 30 drops of lemon eucalyptus essential oil into 4 ounces of witch hazel and add one teaspoon of vanilla extract and, voila, you have a simple yet potent insect repellent!

The witch hazel acts as the base and emulsifier of the mixture while the vanilla adds a pleasant scent.

So mist yourself with this protective potion, leave the screen-time behind and go enjoy the great outdoors!


Fun Tennessee Bee Facts

Bees symbolize the arrival of spring into summer as they move between flowers. Beyond this, bees play a crucial role in agriculture in Tennessee and throughout the country as vital pollinators for various fruits and vegetables. Here are some intriguing bee facts:

– The honeybee holds the title of Tennessee’s official state agricultural insect.

– A queen bee has the remarkable ability to lay up to 2,500 eggs daily.

– North America is home to over 4,000 bee species.

– Honeybee pollination significantly benefits Tennessee agriculture, adding more than $500 million in value.

– Honeybees are responsible for pollinating over 100 crops in the United States.


The CBD Connection 

Did you know that the price of most agricultural products has been artificially lowered by USDA subsidies to industrial farms, and does not reflect the true cost of growing food? In order to keep our sustainably grown fruits and veggies affordable AND fairly compensate our local farmers, the Produce Department offers another time-honored agricultural product ~ legal cannabis ~ to raise the bottom line of our department, help cover operating expenses of the store and create value for our members.

For the month of July our CBD products including gummies, infused honeys, bath bombs and beverages such as seltzers, cider and kombucha will be generously discounted! 

If you are already a fan, stock up! If not, consider giving them a try. The “industry” has come a long way in recent years, offering many convenient and delicious ways for the plant to help with stress, anxiety, and sleep.

A bit about the physiological relationship between humans and cannabis:

The human body has its own endocannabinoid system, and naturally responds to the influx of cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. The endocannabinoid system is made up of neurotransmitters and cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), which are spread throughout the entire body. CB1 receptors are found in largest concentrations in you brain an central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are more commonly present in peripheral organs, especially cells involved with the immune system.

The endocannabinoid system, along with its receptors and neurotransmitters creates a communication network between the vital systems in your body, regulating a vast range of biological functions, such as sleep cycle, mood stability, pain and pleasure perception, appetite, and much more. When administered, CBD extract stimulates the cannabinoid receptors and may positively impact your body and brain. Moreover, it prompts the body to produce more of its own natural cannabinoids!
