Organic Homemade Mosquito Repellant
Here is how to make homemade mosquito repellant!
15 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
3 – 4 Tbsp Homemade Vanilla Extract (which is why I recommend making your own so it’s inexpensive!)
4-5 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
Mix all of the above ingredients in a spray bottle and fill the rest up with water.
And I LOVE the smell of this mixture too! No need for perfume, lol.
I would recommend reapplying fairly often as well.
There are a few other options that you could use as well instead of the above ingredients (although it might not smell as nice). Instead of the lavender essential oil you could use cinnamon oil, lemon eucalyptus oil, or citronella oil, and instead of vanilla you can just use your favorite cooking oil, witch hazel, or just plain vodka (my homemade vanilla extract was made in vodka).
Have you tried making your own mosquito repellent? I’d love to hear other recipes too!
And let us know if you try this one and it works for you!
