A natural mosquito repellent or spray can be made quickly and easily with essential oils. They are a safe and nontoxic alternative to store bought products that contain many harmful chemicals and additives.
I personally can not use any product that contains synthetic chemicals. I usually have an immediate skin reaction to the chemicals that are in the product. Essential oils are a perfect and harmless alternative. They not only smell great but one can also reap all the other benefits of the oils!
Why is it Important to use a Natural Mosquito Repellent?
Unfortunately mosquitoes do carry viruses and disease, so it is important to try to use something to deter them and prevent biting. But if one does get a mosquito bite then essential oils can help there as well!
What is the Difference between Gnats and Mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes, gnats and midges are often mixed up, so check out the section on gnats as well. There is some overlap in the oils that will repel mosquitoes and gnats, but most oils are insect specific. So you may want to make a natural mosquito repellent that repels both!
How do we Keep Mosquitoes Population Down to a Minimum?
Mosquitoes breed in water. Their larvae eggs are either placed in the water or around water to hatch. So the first step is eliminating all standing water around your home or barn as best as you can.

Want to Make A Mosquito Spray?
Make a natural mosquito repellent spray by simply placing oils in a water base. Use two teaspoons of pure grain alcohol to 4 tablespoons of water with 5 drops of oil.
You may also just put several drops of the oils in with some distilled water as well as I prefer to do. Place it in a glass spray bottle; and shake and spray away! The 1 or 2 ounce spray bottles are perfect for personal use!Can using the Essential Oil Insect Replellent Help Deter Mosquito Bites?
Absolutely! It has been clinically proven to prevent insect bites.
