Prayer #156: For the Use of a Mosquito Repellant to Protect from the COVID-19 Virus
Citriodiol, an ingredient in some mosquito repellants, is an extract from the eucalyptus citriodora tree, Corymbia citrodora, a lemon-scented tree that grows in Australia. The unrefined oil from this tree is used in some perfumes. and the refined oil, citriodiol, is used in such mosquito repellants as Mosi-guard. A research team at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) in the United Kingdom has just released the results of a study that indicates that citriodiol has antiviral properties and that the application of it could potentially protect one from COVID-19. The British Armed Forces are already using Mosi-guard as a layer of protection from the virus. Citriodiol is already EPA-approved for use against mosquitos.
Pray for the further confirmation tests that are now underway before citriodiol will be recommended for general use. Pray that indeed, this would prove to be a highly-effective protective substance against the COVID-19 virus.
