Mosquitos can be very annoying and sometimes very dangerous because they can be carrying harmful diseases or sometimes an entire plague, and when you try so hard to get rid of them, they just pop up out of nowhere. If you are sick of mosquitos (like me), use these following natural products to repel those tiny annoying creatures.
1. Cedar Oil
Mosquitos can’t stand the smell of cedar oil. Simply spread it everywhere in your house to send them away and even outside your house to enjoy a night out in your garden. This method is great because it also keeps cockroaches and flies away, so basically, that is 3 birds with one stone.
This beautiful plant is an excellent mosquito repeller. You just have to plant it in your garden to keep mosquitos away.
3. Juniper Branche
If you have a backyard and you are bombarded with massive numbers of mosquitos, then put some juniper branches with your firewood and kindling to keep mosquitos at bay.
4. Vanilla Powder
This method is really easy and super effective, simply mix some baby powder with a pinch of vanilla, then apply the DIY mosquito repellent to your face to keep mosquitos away from you.
Boil water with some cloves, then let the solution cool down, then blend it with some water and apply it to your skin. This way you will repel mosquitos and keep them away from you because they absolutely hate the smell of cloves.
This method has been passed down from generation to generation a long time ago, that is why you should know it. Plant some pyrethrum in your garden, then spread the stems all over your house to keep mosquitos away.
7. Eucalyptus Oil
This method is really easy, simply dilute eucalyptus oil with water, then apply the mixture to your skin to keep mosquitos away from you. You can also add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to some cotton balls, then place them on your windowsills. Make sure to keep your pets away from the cotton balls because eucalyptus oil can be poisonous to them.
This herb is a true virtuoso, it can be used for cooking, to spread a nice scent, and most importantly, repel mosquitos. Plant basil in your garden or backyard to keep mosquitos away. You can also get a potted basil plant to have inside the house just in case.
9. Sage Grass
Add some sage grass to boiling water, then let the solution steep for some time, then apply it to your skin after it cools down to keep mosquitos away.
