Non chemical mosquito repellent what works ?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone hope you are doing ok 

The hot damp weather here has left us with an abundance of mosquitos who decided to have a wonderful feast on me land my reaction to them hasn't been great even with hydrocortisone cream and antihistermines they are driving me insane itchy and really painful, sure some of you relate .

Any suggestions to what natural repellents work, I tried a commercial one and immediatly my breathing became an issue.

Thanks in advance

@dancer65 - I have seen great effects from bracelets. Here in the US they sell them in retail pharmacies or Walmart, they are treated with citronella oil and you wear them and they really worked for me. I am a delicacy for bugs - they really like my blood. and I too break out really bad from the bites, so I know what it is like. These bracelets have helped and are cheap. I think you can get them on amazon. Another thing that helps - we light incense sticks when we are outside. Especially frankincense keeps the bugs away but in your case it might cause breathing problems.

Thank you!  I have been looking for something which isn't an aerosol and which isn't heavy to carry around

I use one that is organic called “green wise organics”. I found it at Costco. It repels mosquitoes and other bugs. It’s really effective which is not always the case with organic sprays. My child is allergic to mosquitoes so this has been really helpful. There is a bit of an odor when you first put it on but it’s from the citronella...not sure if that would affect your breathing or not.
