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. 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.

mosquito Bite remedy



(And free from chemicals that poison the body)


  • 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.
  • Observe the mosquitoes fleeing the room.
  • Repels fleas on pets too.

    I’m a little confused by the mix. 100 ml is the equivalent of 1 drop of oil. Don’t you mean mg?

    • Cliff Ashbridge says:

      I’m sorry. I meant to say grams not mg.

    • Bill says:

      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.

  3. Won't this turn your skin brown?
    And does it stain?

    • Bill says:

      Does what stain Tina? Not sure what You Are referring to… sorry?

    • Cliff Ashbridge says:

      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?

      • Bill says:

        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?

    Thanks for this!

  5. Angie Belding Schneider, this is for Jordan……try it!

  6. Fred says:

    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..!

    • Bill says:

      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?

  9. Judy Polifka says:

    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?

    • Bill says:

      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

  10. Joan Nance says:

    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!

    • Bill says:

      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.

  11. Pat says:

    I’m assuming you strain out the cloves before adding the oil?

  12. Elizabeth Wmith says:

    what kind of alcohol?

    • Bill says:

      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

    What kind of cloves?

    • Bill says:

      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.
