With the arrival of summer here is the return of mosquitoes. Better to avoid products that are potentially harmful to health and the environment if we want to remove them. So let's try to prepare some natural mosquito remedies.
To prepare a do-it-yourself mosquito repellent, very few ingredients are enough that together create pleasant scents for us but unwelcome to mosquitoes, which therefore will tend to move away. There are many remedies to ward off mosquitoes in a natural way: from the glass jar with essential oils and floating candle to the bottle that becomes a trap for mosquitoes.
Now we explain how to prepare a really simple and at the same time effective mosquito repellent remedy. The remedy we propose does not contain dangerous substances. The main ingredients to use are found in herbal medicine.

- 120ml distilled witch hazel water
- 30 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
- 1 teaspoon of food alcohol
Eucalyptus essential oil is a natural mosquito repellent. The remedy will work even better if you can get hold of theessential oil of eucalyptus limoncino as it is a real mosquito repellent. Otherwise you can also experiment with geranium or lemongrass essential oil. Vanilla extract is optional, but it is used to increase the intensity of the scent of this remedy and to try to ward off mosquitoes thanks to odors that are unpleasant for insects. Also add a teaspoon of liquid soap, preferably ecological, or food alcohol which will serve as a carrier for the essential oils, which by themselves do not dissolve in water.

If you do not find distilled witch hazel water, you can replace it with other types of herbal distilled waters.
Simply pour all the ingredients into a glass, mix them with a teaspoon and pour them into a spray bottle with the help of a funnel. Spray the natural mosquito repellent indoors and outdoors to ward off mosquitoes. Use this mosquito repellent in small amounts on the skin only if you are not allergic to essential oils or other ingredients. Better to avoid the use of essential oils on the skin of children and during pregnancy (unless other specific indications received from the doctor or herbalist).
