Peppermint oil and coconut oil
Peppermint oil is another essential oil that works well in repelling mosquitoes. Combining it with coconut oil enhances its mosquito repellent potential and basically makes it your very own natural bug repellent.
Lemon Eucalyptus Oil
Make a mixture of one part of lemon eucalyptus and two parts of carrier oil like, coconut or olive oil. Apply this oil mixture on the affected area for relief.
Lemon eucalyptus oil contains compounds like citronellal and p-methane 3,8-diol. While citronellal is believed to show a little repellency against mosquitoes, PMD is highly effective against these tiny creatures.
Neem oil mixed with coconut oil works really well as a mosquito repellent. A study has proved that 2per cent neem oil, when used in combination with coconut oil, provided significant protection against different species of mosquitoes.
Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil filled with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Its antiseptic properties help in healing wounds. The strong aroma of tea tree oil is another factor that keeps mosquitoes at bay. However, it is quite strong and hence should be used in combination with a good carrier oil like coconut oil.
