There are some wonderful ways to keep the mosquitos away naturally, without any harmful chemicals. These homemade mosquito repellent recipes have worked GREAT for us and I’m thrilled to have found something that isn’t full of toxic chemicals AND that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg (like, for example, California Baby Natural Mosquito Repellent at over $17.00 a bottle).
Homemade Mosquito Repellent
- 1/2 teaspoon vegetable glycerine
- 14 oz Witch Hazel or Vodka (or even Homemade Vanilla Extract made in vodka)
- (optional) Your favorite essential oils for a pleasant aroma experience – I like adding Citronella and Lavender, or even some Cinnamon Essential Oil because it smells so great. Clove, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, and Tea Tree oil (melaleuca alternifolia) are other options that smell amazing too. I personally like the smell of around 40 or so drops of essential oils in this mixture.
Mix all of the above ingredients in a 16 oz spray bottle and spray away!!
