Essential oil mixtures to deter mosquitoes

These mosquito-repelling essential oil mixtures have been formulated according to your location. Indeed, there are generally fewer mosquitoes in the city than in the countryside… Just choose the mixture that’s best adapted to your needs! Because youngsters need protection as well, we have also formulated a mixture for children ages 3 and up.

We designed these essential oil mixtures to be incorporated into our insect repellent recipes: in pure form, they should not be directly applied to skin!

If you’re looking for a natural mosquito repellent for pregnant women or very young children, we recommend using rose geranium hydrosol. It can be sprayed directly onto your body, hair, and clothes.
