Lemon eucalyptus is an effective natural oil to use as a mosquito repellent, with sharp-scented compounds proven to drive mosquitoes away. It can also make a great cleaner! Combine 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup witch hazel (you can add a little vinegar, too) and then add 30 to 40 drops of the lemon eucalyptus oil. You can add a little more of the oil if this amount doesn’t seem to be effective.
Note: This is a potent home bug repellent and is not child or pet friendly.
