Home Made Mosquito Repellent

Image Source:Google Images

I have a baby doll of one & a half year. She is damn naughty & rarely stays at home especially in the evening & we have a garden which is more prone place for mosquitoes. I tried mosquito repellents available in the market but they were pathetic, they never worked after 15 minutes .Then my hubby suggested me to use neem oil as a mosquito repellent. I got it from some local store which is very famous for making all kind of organic oils.

Neem oil is taken from the seeds of the neem tree. It looks dark brown in color & it smells yuck & for that I mixed few drops of lemon grass essential oil (I used fab india lemon grass essential oil) with neem oil. And the results are amazing, I apply this oil to my baby’s skin immediately before she goes in the garden & mosquitoes stay away from her completely. You can also apply it on the already affected/swollen areas; it will reduce that swelling& itching.
You have to apply this evenly on the skin & reapply it in every 2 hours. The amazing results will be in your hands.
Have you tried this? Then please share you experience.
Keep smiling & be beautiful with me:)
