Natural Mosquito Repellents & Mosquito Bite Remedy

mosquito
I love the summer. Especially a beautiful summer evening sitting outside on the deck but, I hate those nasty mosquitos! I can be outside for 5 minutes and come in with 10 bites.  Here are some natural repellents to help keep the little buggers away.

Recipe #1
Combine in a 16 oz spray bottle:
15 drops of lavender oil
3-4 tablespoons vanilla extract
10 drops of Lemon eucalypus oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
Fill the bottle with water and shake well.

Recipe #2
Combine in a 16 oz spray bottle:
15 drops of lavender oil
3-4 tablespoons vanilla extract
Fill the bottle with water and shake well.

Recipe #3
Combine in a 16 oz spray bottle:
15 drops of lavender oil
3-4 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup lemon juice
Fill the bottle with water and shake well.

 Here are more repellents to try

Wear light colored clothing

Burn a candle. The carbon dioxide it gives off will attract mosquitos away from you. 

Have a fan blowing near you. If the mosquito can't land on you due to the breeze, it can't bite you.  

Listerine sprayed around you and/or on you

Listerine and Vinegar mixed 50/50 then sprayed on the body

Vicks Vaporub

Vanilla Extract applied to the pulse points

Lavender Essential Oil applied to the pulse points

Other Essential Oils are Basil, Cedarwood, Citronella, Juniper, Lemon, Myrrh, Palmarosa, Pine, Geranium and Rosemary. These a few drops of any of these oils need to be diluted in an oil or alcohol before applying to the skin.

Here are some commercial natural repellents to try.

mud mask


My favorite remedy for a mosquito bite is mud mask.

I apply it right after the bite. It relieves itching and keeps the bite from swelling into a large welt.

Ahava works great!
