Anti-Mosquito Body Oil
80 ml almond oil or jojoba oil (for more oily skin types)
25 ml grape-seed oil
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil
10 drops cedarwood essential oil
5 drops tea-tree essential oil
5 drops basil essential oil
5 drops lemongrass essential oil
Blend all the ingredients well and keep your mosquito repellent oil in a dark glass container. I use spray bottles (the dark blue or brown ones), which make the application on the skip much easier and it’s handy to carry around. Just be careful not to stain your clothes! This oil blend, apart from being 100% natural and effective, it also nourishes and hydrates the skin!
If you want to make this oil suitable for children aged 3 years and over, then you must keep the amount of base oil and use half the quantity of essential-oil drops given in the recipe above.
If you want to make it for babies or children up to 3 years old, then again you must keep the base oils as they are and use ¼ of the quantity of essential-oil drops given in the recipe.
½ cup vegetable glycerin (I prefer organic)
½ cup vodka
2 tablespoons calendula oil
20 drops cedarwood essential oil
10 drops tea-tree essential oil
10 drops mint essential oil
10 drops geranium essential oil
Mix all the ingredients well and store in a dark-glass spray bottle.
