My MIL swears by Listorene. She thinks it is the best stuff ever. I admit that it works, but DH hates the smell of it and refuses to wear it! All you do it put mouth wash into a spray bottle and spritz it on!
While looking online for healthier choices I found THIS website, which has some great recipes! This is what it says-
Natural Mosquito Repellent IngredientsIf you are making large amounts of mosquito repellent, a good rule of thumb is to mix the repellent so it's 5-10% essential oil, so mix 1 part essential oil with 10-20 parts carrier oil or alcohol.
For a smaller batch use:
- 10-25 drops (total) of essential oils
- 2 tablespoons of a carrier oil or alcohol
- cinnamon oil
- lemon eucalyptus oil
- citronella oil
- castor oil
- olive oil
- sunflower oil
- any other cooking oil
- witch hazel
Natural Mosquito Repellent RecipeMix the essential oil with the carrier oil or alcohol. Rub or spray the natural insect repellent onto skin or clothing, using care to avoid the sensitive eye area. You'll need to re-apply the natural product after about an hour or after swimming or exercise. Unused natural insect repellent may be stored in a dark bottle, away from heat or sunlight.
