DIY Homemade Mosquito Repellent: We get many requests from our readers on what they want us to try out and lately many have been asking for homemade mosquito repellent.
One recipe that was sent to us was found on the website SurvivingTheStores.com. We were lucky enough to already have all of the ingredients at home.
Combine in a 16 oz bottle:
15 drops lavender oil
3-4 Tbsp of vanilla extract
1/4 Cup lemon juice.
Fill bottle with water.
Shake and ready to use.
We made 2 – 8oz bottles and are going to have two of our followers: Becky and Lisa test these out for Weve Tried It. They have both been eaten alive by mosquitoes recently and we have asked them to try it. We will update the story with their verdict on whether it works or not. We do not claim this works and will give our honest feedback.
Recently we wrote a story called ‘Home Remedies for Mosquito Bite Itch Relief.’ If you do end up getting attacked by mosquitoes check out that story here.
Have you ever made your own bug spray and had great results? We would love to hear about your recipe, leave us a comment below.
