Keep mosquitoes, gnats and midges away with this essential oil mosquito repellent diffuser recipe. I created this recipe by using a drop of every insect repelling essential oil I owned - it worked perfectly and smells great too! Includes recommended substitutions for any oils you don't own.
|1 drops Eucalyptus|
|1 drops Tea Tree|
|1 drops Peppermint|
|1 drops Lavender|
|1 drops Lemon Eucalyptus|
|1 drops Citronella|
Diffuse the oils instead of using a mosquito coil. It works just as well, doesn't messy ash behind and you won't be breathing in any nasty chemicals.
A mixture of essential oils works much better than any single oil for keeping insects away. If you don't have some of the oils in the recipe, you can either leave them out and use more of the oils you do have or substitute with any of the following: lemongrass, cedarwood, thyme, rosemary, spearmint, basil, cinnamon.
