Mosquito bites are the itchy bumps that appear after mosquitos use their mouthparts to puncture your skin and feed on your blood. Most mosquito bites are harmless, but occasionally a mosquito bite causes a large area of swelling, soreness and redness. This type of reaction is most common in children.
Natural Homemade Mosquito Spray
30-50 drops of one or more of the following essential oils: citronella
, eucalyptus, basil, rosemary, tea tree, geranium, lavender and thyme. The more oils you use, the stronger the spray will be.
An empty spray container
An empty mixing jar to mix the contents in
Pour witch hazel in the mixing jar and add the essential oils. Shake well and place in your spray bottle using a funnel, is the best way. Before each use just shake up a bit.
