HOMEMADE MOSQUITO REPELLENT

HOMEMADE MOSQUITO REPELLENT

Now, you may or may not have come across this recipe for Homemade Mosquito repellent. Perhaps you already have a few good recipes yourself, however, I thought this recipe looked pretty good and was worth sharing. None of these are my own recipes, these have been created by other people.

(WARNING! Please test these on a very small part of your skin before applying too much. Everyone has a different reaction to different products. If you get any irritation please stop immediately)

I have posted a few different recipes below so you can give them all ago to see which ones suit you.I am always on the lookout for healthy, safe, alternatives especially natural Mosquito/Insect control products.

RECIPE #1

HOMEMADE MOSQUITO REPELLENT (ALSO FOR ANTS & FLEAS) 

(And free from chemicals that poison the body)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 litre of alcohol ( I would maybe use a Triple distilled alcohol such as Vodka)  This is OK on your skin. Refer to my post on a Guasha Scrub recipe using Vodka)
  • 100 grams of whole cloves: You can Buy Organic Whole Cloves Here! (Amazon.Com)
  • 100 ml of baby oil or similar (almond, sesame, chamomile, lavender, fennel etc) I would personally look for a good Organic cold pressed oil. I am not a big fan of baby Oil.
  • Leave cloves to marinate in alcohol four days
  • Stir every morning and evening
  • After 4 days add the oil
  • It’s now ready to use.

How to use:

  • Gently rub a few drops into the skin of the arms and legs.
  • Repels fleas on pets too.
  • REMEMBER! Test on small area of skin first.

(There will be seperation of the alcohol and oils when left to sit for a while. You may need to give this a good shake before use everytime. )

    • Hello Cliff,
      100 Ml is more than one drop. Here is an example of 100 ml: I cup is 240ml, 3/4 of a cup is 180ml so 100 ml is approx 0.416 cups
      or just under 1/2 a cup. Hope that helps. So 120ml is 1/2 a cup so a bit less than that.

    • Bill,
      She is referring to your skin being discolored from the mix as it is really brown when it is fully marinated and also will it stain clothing?

      • Thanks Cliff. I am assuming that is with the Hemp Oil? Like I said I have never tried the hemp oil on my skin. It is a fairly
        Dark coloured oil with a distinct smell. Like always if you want to try it, just put a small amount on an area that is not noticeable
        at first. I might do a blog just on the benefits of Hemp oil. Maybe someone else on here can answer that question?

  1. If you recommend organic coconut oil or maybe just a good organic cold pressed oil, what do you think about cold pressed organic hemp seed oil?
    Thank you, Bill..!

    • Hey Fred,
      I love Organic hemp Seed Oil. It has so many benefits. Honestly I have not tried it as a carrier oil. can’t see why not, only that it is fairly expensive.
      You can take it internally so I cannot see why you can’t rub it onto your skin. Very nutty flavour hemp seed oil. Might smell a little different?

  2. I did not see that you recommended Vodka and assumed you meant rubbing alcohol which the cloves have been absorbing. Is there a way to change over to vodka without having to start over with new (expensive) cloves?

    • Hello Judy,
      I don’t know a lot about what’s in rubbing Alcohol. I believe it is like a surgical Spirit that is approx 70% pure, concentrated ethanol depending on the manufacturer. Not sure what other chemicals are in it. I recommended the Vodka because I have use it, and was recommended the Vodka by a very good source. There probably are a few different safe forms of alcohol you could use other than Vodka. Just do a bit more research on the rubbing Alcohol for your own benefit.
      Here is a link to Wiki in regrds to rubbing alcohol http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubbing_alcohol

    • I went to the local grocery store and found the cloves much cheaaper in a bag in the hispanic food and spice section. 1/3 of the price.

  3. I used rubbing alcohol and now have my cloves soaking in it. Is this OK? I’m wondering if this makes it unsafe for my outdoor cats? Next time I will do it right!

    • Hello Joan,

      I was asked the same question by another follower. Here is a link to the properties of Rubbing Alcohol on Wiki : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubbing_alcohol
      Not sure about your cat with the rubbing alcohol? Might pay to ask your local vet maybe. Maybe try a little on a small area first to check it out. Thank you for your question.

    • Hello Elizabeth,
      Thank you for reading my post on Natural Mosquito repellent. I would be using a triple distilled alcohol such as vodka.
      THere is a previous post I did in regard to a good skin scrub recipe. I use a triple distilled Vodka in that recipe.
      It is just Aluminium free bicarb and triple distilled Vodka. i scrub this all over my body even my face. Here is the link to that recipe. http://yourlifeyourfoods.com/health-tips/process-of-gua-sha

    • Hello Flalesha
      Thanks for visiting my site. I have included a link explaining the type of Clove to use. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloves
      I hope this helps. The other thing i would probably replace is the Baby Oil. I would prefer to use something like Organic Coconut Oil.
      I am a big fan of Coconut oil. Or maybe just a good Organic Cold pressed oil as the carrier.
      I hope this has been of some help.
      Regards
