Keep Mosquitoes Away With These Natural Ingredients

Summer is all about fun in the backyard. Whether that means floating in a pool or swinging in a hammock you want to make sure that your backyard is free from mosquitoes. That’s a pretty tall order around some parts! You could try to fog the area with bug spray but that always seems to leave a nasty odor in the air and makes everything rather sticky. Instead, consider using these natural ingredients to keep the mosquitoes away and ensure that your backyard summer fun is bite free.

Lavender

Lavender is a very durable plant. One little stem can grow into a mighty bush. As the lavender blooms, the crushed flowers create a wonderful fragrance. They also make an oil that repels mosquitoes. That same oil works as an analgesic, antifungal and antiseptic ointment. You can apply the diluted oil directly to areas of your body that are sensitive to bites or add the oil to a clean cloth and rub it onto your skin.

Cinnamon Oil

How many things can you name the taste better with cinnamon? You add it to applesauce, toast and oatmeal, right? Cinnamon doesn’t just come in a powder form but also as an oil. That oil can be diluted into a spray bottle and used directly onto your skin. You can also spray it on to clothing, patio furniture and beach towels.

Citronella

Citronella is another one of those essential oils that works against mosquitoes. It isn’t just one herb but a combination of ingredients. The most common form of citronella can be found in candles. You just have to be sure that the formula being used is effective. Some citronella candles are too diluted to stand against a mosquitoes swarm. It may take a few candles to do the trick.

Lemon Eucalyptus Oil

You can find lemon Eucalyptus oil wherever essential oils are sold. As with any type of essential oil, you should never apply it directly to the skin without it first being diluted. These are very powerful ingredients. Lemon Eucalyptus oil also should be used on children under the age of three. That’s how powerful it is.

Getting rid of mosquitoes is the first step. The next step is to make sure your yard is clear of debris and clutter. You certainly don’t want any of the kids tripping over things like spare tires or construction waste. One call to Junk King Chattanooga can clear way all that debris. These are the junk removal pros who will send over a moving crew and truck to load up whatever you want to get rid of. Getting your yard clear of mosquitoes and rubbish is really the best way to make sure you’re ready for summer fun.
