Homemade, Natural Mosquito Repellent

Updated: Jun 6

Here in the desert, the mosquitoes arrive with summer weather. I've always been one of those people who is highly attractive to mosquitoes, and I can be literally covered in mosquito bites in just a short time outside.  I passed this trait on to my son Ian as well. 😝

Time for mosquito repellent, but I'm not willing to risk potential health problems by using conventional mosquito repellents. Did you know that DEET is banned in some European countries due to toxicity concerns? That's a big NO for my family!

Fortunately, there are effective natural options. For the last 10+ years, we've been using this homemade essential oil mosquito spray, and it works great so long as it is applied often.  This spray smells wonderful, so it is no chore to spritz ourselves with it every 30-60 minutes when we are outside during mosquito season.
