I hope my methods work for you, they have made a big difference at our house and allowed us to enjoy the summer months more.
If mosquitoes in the house are a problem, you will
probably want to wear mosquito repellent
throughout the day. Many commercial products
work well, but they come with risks, especially for
everyday use. However, our natural solutions are
just as practical and perfectly safe. Here are our
best suggestions for keeping mosquitoes away
Skip the Perfume
Many perfumes attract mosquitoes to you. If you
seem to be eaten alive by mosquitoes, it may be
your perfume. Stop wearing it for a few days to see
if it helps. If you must wear scent, try an essential
oil blend that contains the oils of plants that
mosquitoes hate, such as lavender.
Use mosquito net.
Mosquito nets are an old but practical solution to
the mosquito problem. Use mosquito nets to
surround your bed and keep mosquitoes away.
Don’t forget to cover your baby’s crib with mosquito
netting also. Netting is a good solution in areas
with a high mosquito population.
Hang the nets from the ceiling or the bed canopy
and surround the bed. Raise the net to get into bed,
then replace it with a barrier and a good night’s
Rub Dryer Sheets on Your Skin
Dryer sheets are reported to help repel mosquitoes.
I haven’t tried this method personally, but I would
use a scented lavender sheet for best results. It is
also a great way to keep spiders away .
Some people might be allergic to the dryer sheets,
so avoid using dryer sheets if you have sensitive
Swat Them Better
If a mosquito does land on you, kill it. But here is
the best way to swat them. For best results, don’t
react immediately. Give the mosquito a minute to
settle in and get ready to bite.
Then attack quickly with a fast slap. Usually, if you
slap them immediately, they are on the lookout and
will get away. Once they have relaxed their
diligence, you can swat them more reliably.
Neem oil is a natural insecticide and repellent. In
its concentrated form, it can cause skin irritations in
some people, so always use it diluted with coconut
oil, olive oil, or another carrier oil.
Neem oil has a strong smell that some people find
unpleasant so that you can use other essential oils
in the mix for a better fragrance.
Neem Oil Spray Recipe
4 teaspoons warm coconut oil
20 drops neem oil
5-10 drops lavender or other pleasant fragrance
Our neem oil spray recipe is designed to fit into a
small bottle. Mix it directly in the bottle and spray
onto all exposed areas of skin every 8 to 12 hour.
