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! 😀 Let me know what you think if you try it!
One tsp. soybean oil
¼ tsp. Palmolive Original liquid soap (Original one is sal-free)
1 cup water
Mix, pour into a spray bottle and spray on.
**Oct 2017 update: This summer I used just Palmolive original and rubbed it in like lotion. Totally works for me! 🙂
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! 😀
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 🙂
And OFF! Deep Woods have alot of salicylates in the fragrance ingredients, I would not risk using these. There is one without fragrance that looks safe so far, check out OFF! Deep Woods Sportsmen, in a little pump. I used this in Africa, when it was super important to have one that works, with all the malaria mosquitos over there. It’s a really good brand.
