Two Recipes: Easy Homemade Insect Repellent
By Admin (from 02/06/2013 @ 06:06:02, in en - Science and Society, read 1707 times)

Recipe #1

According to researchers, “nepetalactone, the essential oil in catnip (pictured)  that gives the plant its characteristic odor, is about ten times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET — the compound used in most commercial insect repellents.” Problem is, catnip and a few other oil listed here are not recommended for pregnant or nursing mamas. For pregnant/nursing friendly options see recipe #2.

4 oz purified water
15 drops lemongrass essential oil (you can also use it to open up sinus and breathing passages, soothe torn or strained ligaments/tendons, heal ringworm, add shine and lustre to damaged hair, and as calming massage oil)
15 drops eucalyptus essential oil (get it for less by buying it with lemongrass, peppermint, orange, lavendar, tea tree)
15 drops lemon essential oil (use as a replacement to hand sanitize or mix with water in a spray bottle for bathroom air freshener. I’ve even heard you can add a couple drops to your dishwasher for spot free dishes)
15 drops citronella essential oil
15 drops catnip essential oils (“The active constituent in catnip, nepetalactone, has been found to be more effective than the insect repellent diethyl-meta-toluamide (DEET)”)
 
Recipe #2

4 oz purified water
60 drops lemon essential oil (avoid during first three months of pregnancy, fine after that. Also safe for breastfeeding)
