Natural mosquito repellent: let’s find out which one to choose to eliminate them.

Natural mosquito repellent is one of the most precious remedies for the hot season. With the arrival of mosquitoes, in fact, living peacefully becomes difficult: especially for those who are often bitten and find themselves having to scratch all day. Fortunately, in nature, there are several substances that can keep mosquitoes away both from the environment and from ourselves. Let’s find out which are the most effective .

Natural mosquitoes: which ones are better to choose to defend your home

When dealing with mosquitoes, the only thing you want is to find a quick and easy way to get rid of them and never see them again. On the market there are several medicinal solutions that have this purpose but which are often expensive or too rich in chemical agents. Thankfully, nature comes to our aid with some natural mosquito repellents that can make a difference.

The first thing to do is to protect the environment. If you have balconies or gardens, you can then arrange citronella-based candles to ward off mosquitoes. At the same time you can choose plants such as oregano or lemon, whose scents tend to confuse mosquitoes making them less aggressive. Going to the interiors, a trick is to create jars containing vinegar and lemon slices. Positioned in the places where you stay the most, you will be able to keep mosquitoes away.

As already mentioned there are people who are more subject to the attention of mosquitoes and who can find themselves in difficulty every time they leave the house. Also in this case you can act in a natural way. The trick here is to use essential oils to apply to the skin.

The most effective are neem essential oil (also suitable for children or those with particularly delicate skin), tea tree and eucalyptus or basil essential oils. Just mix them with vegetable oil, spread them on the skin or at least on the uncovered areas and mosquitoes will be kept away. What if the mosquitoes have already acted? If so, there are natural remedies to soothe the itch.

Warning: for allergy sufferers it is always good to do a test on a small part of the skin before using the oil. In this way you will understand if you can continue or if it is better to change the ingredient.
