Make Your Own Mosquito Repellent
Making your own mosquito repellent is very easy and eliminates your exposure to toxins. It’s important to find an oil or alcohol that works for you and is safe for your skin. Simply mix the essential oil with a carrier oil or alcohol. You can add to a spray bottle or simply rub on your skin or clothing. Re-apply every couple of hours or after swimming or exercising. Store your bottle in a cool dark area, away from sun and heat.
Please keep mind that just because something is natural doesn’t mean its safe. Many people have allergic reactions to essential oils. Be sure that your essential oil is the real thing and not synthetic.
