Mosquitos can be a real nuisance during summer. All of those mosquito-repellent sprays you can buy at the pharmacy are not the healthiest way to get rid of these flies. Thankfully there are always natural alternatives that will make your life easier. Next time you want to skip on store-bought products, try some of these natural mosquito-repellents.

Cinnamon Oil

Cinnamon oil is one of the best natural mosquito-repellents, thanks to cinnamyl acetate, eugenol, and cinnamaldehyde. All of these ingredients have a very powerful way of making the little creatures stay away from you.

Lemon Eucalyptus Oil

This oil is a very effective natural mosquito-repellant. It contains both citronellal and p-methane 3,8-diol (PMD). These two ingredients are proven to be the least favorite things of mosquitos.

Neem Oil

Neem oil comes from the seeds of the neem tree. Research shows that only a small amount of this oil will keep mosquitos away from you. The main thing is its strong aroma and a number of active ingredients.

NEEM is really my discovery of the year! Never heard about it? You should read and get some!👌🏼 . I first came across it when I went to India couple of years ago, I smelt it and it was "bleah I don't like this". Then I saw it being processed at the farm I was staying in Nicaragua but the strong smell would keep me away🙊. Only early this year I got this from @khadinatural and what a change has been for my skin! . I usually talk about products only once I used them for a while and I can tell you for sure that Neem extract is the ultimate drop to add to your daily face/body lotion. Yes its smell is not the best (don't apply it before going out, do it before bed😉) I could see results in only 1week, my skin was way smoother, brighter and had a natural better tan. . Neem oil, extracted from the leaves of the tree, it is used a lot in Ayurveda. It rejuvenates skin and reduces all types of inflammations, acne, scars, rushes…super antiseptic! I usually add a drop into coconut oil or the lotion I m using and the magic happens💫 . Try it out for yourself and let me know 🌾 . #neemoil #ultimatediscovery #neemextract #neem #neemplant #naturalcosmetic #india #ayurveda #ayurvedicoil #bestremedy #skinremedy #naturalplant #neemtree #nicaragua #kerala #newdelhi #naturalremedies
