mosquito repellent

Are you always running away from mosquitoes? Are you always clapping your hands hard to murder some of these ruthless fellows? Are you one of those people who attract every mosquito in the neighborhood while others around you don’t get a single bite?

Mosquitoes cause more human suffering worldwide than any other organism, killing over one million people every year.

Here’s are a few DIY recipes for making your own natural mosquito repellent using essential oils. Non-chemical mosquito repellents contain a diluted mixture of essential oils that mosquitoes find distasteful or which confuse their ability to detect your own odors so they can’t find you and therefore won’t bite you.

The best part about these is that they smell good and do not cost a fortune.
