Natural Mosquito Repellent Recipe

natural mosquito spray

Summer is here and we all love to be outside. But if you are like me, I hate being “bugged” by Mosquitoes and other flying bugs like Gnats. We all worry about what we are spraying all over our bodies and more importantly, what we are spraying on our children. Never worry about harsh chemicals when you can do the same work with natural essential oils. So be safe this summer and use safe and natural essential oil Mosquito repellent spray with this recipe.

Mix Ingredients:

Mix these oils with the water in a spray bottle and shake well. The pressurized bottle seems to work best to help keep the mixture spraying evenly. Use the mixture in a small area to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction like redness to the oils. I figure an allergy is much better than the harsh chemicals in the other bug sprays.

Thyme (red) Essential Oil. 10 ml. 100% Pure, Undiluted, Therapeutic Grade as low as $7.93 and free shipping

  • Botanical Name: Thymus vulgaris
  • Aromatic Scent: Red Thyme Essential Oil has a fresh, herbaceous, medicinal scent. It has often been described as sharp and warming.
  • 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil- no fillers, additives, bases or carriers added.
  • Packaged in dark amber glass bottle with euro style dropper cap.

Peppermint Essential Oil. 10 ml. 100% Pure, Undiluted, Therapeutic Grade as low as $6.72 and free shipping

  • Botanical Name: Mentha arvensis
  • Aromatic Scent: Peppermint Japanese Essential Oil has a sharp, penetrating mint scent based on its high menthol content. The sweetness of the vapor makes it easy to see why it is such a common flavoring and scenting agent.
  • 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil- no fillers, additives, bases or carriers added.
  • Packaged in dark amber glass bottle with euro style dropper cap.
  • For your convenience all Plant Therapy Essential Oils have an oil identification sticker on the cap. This is especially beneficial if you use a top load carrying case.

Combine your Mosquito mixture and add it to any of these spray bottles:

I love that essential oils are an alternative to those chemical infused commercial mosquito repellent products. Soy oil is another natural repellent that has been noted to be as effective as their deet-based counterparts.
