How to Make All-Natural Mosquito Repellant

June 30, 2016


The Stuff:

– 1-2 Lemon Wedges
– 1-2 Lime Wedges
– A couple sprigs of Rosemary
– Water (fill remainder of jar with water)
– Active Ingredient: Lemon Eucalyptus oil (7-10 drops)
– Floating Tea Candles


You can find Lemon Eucalyptus oil for a few dollars at Amazon and pick up floating tea candles for about 50 cents a piece at Michael’s craft store.


This is a simple mosquito repellant to whip up in minutes and place outdoors five minutes before going outside. The other common approach is to put Citronella in a mason jar and poke a hole in the top and feed a long wick through.
