Natural recipes to prevent and relieve mosquito bites


My favorite and so efficient essential oil to relieve the itchiness from mosquito bites is the spike lavender. The only thing you have to do is to put a drop of this pure oil on the bite as soon as possible and the itchiness will be relieved almost instantly. If you add a drop of peppermint essential oil, I can tell you that you won't feel anything anymore. (A drop of lemon eucalyptus is also very efficient.)

Home made mosquito repellent

In a 100ml spray bottle, mix together:

50 ml of aloes gel

40 ml of almond oil

2 ml of lemongrass essential oil

2 ml of geranium essential oil

2 ml of lemon eucalyptus essential oil

4 ml of catmint essential oil

Shake well, and apply about every 3 hours. You can spray it in the air around you or directly on the skin with no worry as the mixture is natural and perfectly safe.
