Mosquito Repellant Recipe

May 26, 2014


Tila ends up in tens (that looks like hundreds) of mosquito bites every single summer. I never want to use those harsh mosquito repellants full of harmful synthetic chemicals and the natural ones usually don’t do much. At least the ones I bought didn’t. But I think I might just have found a recipe that works. At least the reviews say so. I’m going to put my lab goggles on next week and make a bottle to see if it really works. Maybe you know this recipe already? Or do you have another one that provenly works? Please share – I really want to spare her and baby Talan all the scratching this year.

100 ml jojoba oil
20 drops of Basil essential Oil
10 drops of Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil
30 of Citronella or Lemongrass Essential Oil

It’s best to pour everything into a spray bottle and mix every time before use!

Ps. The cute mosquito tote bag is from Ryo Takemasa and you can get one from here with free worldwide shipping!

    Thank you for this! I love when you post these! I am obsessed with the deodorant recipe you posted some time ago. What do you think is better, citronella or lemongrass? I want to use what works best but I think I’ll like the lemongrass scent better. Thanks again for the recipe. These posts are the best!
