Salicylate safe Mosquito Repellant

A friend shared the following recipe with me for mosquito repellant, I haven’t tried it yet, but will soon as it’s warm enough for mosquitos! πŸ˜€ Let me know what you think if you try it!

Mosquito Repellent

Palmolive Original

Palmolive Original

One tsp. soybean oil
ΒΌ tsp. Palmolive Original liquid soap (Original one is sal-free)
1 cup water
Mix, pour into a spray bottle and spray on.

**June 2 2014 update: a friend tried just a little water with Palmolive original and rubbed it all over and she said it kept the mosquitoes away that were previously feasting on her! Totally going to try this! Definitely easier than the soybean oil mixed in there! lol πŸ™‚

Sal-Free Insect repellant

Sal-Free Insect repellant

I’ve also heard of putting a Bounce sheet in your pocket, supposed to keep mosquitos away, and the upside? Makes you smell like fresh laundry! YEAH! πŸ˜€

There are these bug-repellant clip ons that you just clip to your clothes that are supposed to work as well. It’s not touching your skin, so should also be sal-safe πŸ™‚

And OFF! Deep Woods in the spray can and This Pump (Click links for pictures and ingredient lists) are currently sal-free as well, as always, check ingredients on the can before buying, make sure there’s no aloe or anything in there πŸ™‚

    Palmolive original? Green color? There are so many flavors now?

  4. Grace says:

    Green dye has salicylates in it doesn’t it? We are new to figuring all of this out but we avoid anything that’s not clear.

    • Christine says:

      Hi Grace! I’ve never heard of that! Where did you get that info from, I’m very curious now! πŸ™‚ What are you finding green dye in that you are putting on your skin?

    • Christine says:

      oh- and good job being safe rather than sorry! πŸ™‚ Personally I wouldn’t worry about green dye, when I did a little research it came up as being iffy, but mostly for people who are sensitive to chemicals more than for people who can’t have salicylates. Are you going salicylate free for the guaifenesin protocol? Because that makes a big difference too!
      If your green dye is called a green plant dye or something with a plant name in it, then maybe it’s something to think about, but I’ve never seen that! Usually dyes are SUPER watered down anyways so I wouldn’t worry about it πŸ™‚
      Stick with the Sal, Camph, Menth and plant oils, gels, extracts, etc as being your ingredients to watch out for. Have you seen my other posts on salicylates?

    Hi! How are you sure that Off bug spray does not have Salicylates. They wont even reveal their list of ingredients to the public. If you know for sure that would be great!

Leave a lovely comment! I read and respond to all comments here and love to hear from you! <3
