Most commonly known for its effect on cats, Catnip Oil can actually be an effective mosquito repellent as well! In fact, recent studies have shown that catnip can be up to ten times more potent than the standard mosquito repellent. There are two main ways to use catnip as a repellent. Option 1: Take a sprig of the plant and crush it in your hand. Once the oils are released, place the catnip in a pocket or around the neckline of your clothes. So that it can continue giving off its scent. Option 2: Use catnip oil and apply it to your neck, wrists, and ankles allowing its scent to act as a repellent.
Comparable to most commercial repellents, Lemongrass oil is a great mosquito repellent option. Lemongrass oil is found in Citronella candles which are a popular non-topical form of mosquito repellent. Essential oil repellents, like this one, can be combined with other essential oils to maximize their repellent effectiveness.
IR 3535 Cream
Available in most drugstores in the form of cream, IR3535 is a synthetic amino acid that is in most insect repellents. This particular amino acid compromises the mosquito’s senses so that they are unable to smell. This form of mosquito repellent is non-toxic and provides up to eight hours for protection from mosquitoes as well as other insects.
