Stop that Itch – Natural Mosquito Repellent
A simple spray can be made using essential oils. Choose from citronella, peppermint, lemon, eucalyptus, basil, clove, thyme, lemongrass, geranium and lavender.
Lavender oil prevents the spread of infection caused by a bug bite and controls the itching and inflammation often associated with bug bites.
Caution: Do not use neat essential oil on the skin, dilute in a solution of Witch Hazel to make an insect repellent spray.
Mix 300mls Witch Hazel with 10 drops each of Lavender, lemongrass, tea tree and peppermint.
Experiment with different essential oils and try them out.
