Why buy expensive mossie spray when you can make it yourself very cheaply. I make may own homemade mosquito repellent and it keeps the mossies, sand flies, and flies away.
I am one of those people that always get bitten by insects, when everyone else can’t feel a thing. Here I am scratching and slapping myself while other people are just standing there watching.
I seriously thought that this home-made recipe for mosquito spray would not work…But I am telling you that it really works.
Homemade Mosquito Spray No.1
- 1 part Dettol
- 3 parts Baby oil
Shake the bottle and away you go. I usually put mine in an empty pump spray bottle. Actually an old aero-guard one. This stuff goes a long way too. It seems to last forever. This ones smells like dettol so I sometimes add some eucalyptus oil to hide the odour.
Homemade Mosquito Spray No.2
Grab an empty 200ml spray bottle
15 drops lavender oil
3-4 Tbsp of vanilla extract
1/4 Cup lemon juice.
Fill bottle with water and shake.
I will never go back to paying $5 or more for a chemical ridden can of mossie spray.
