Mosquito repellent sprays are not 100% safe as they contain harmful and hazardous ingredients. Mosquito repellent creams and gels are safer but still not entirely free from synthetic ingredients. Looking out for an all-natural mosquito repellent? Here is a recipe for natural mosquito repellent gel:
Aloe gel- Has moisturizing, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Commercially bought aloe vera makes a great base as it contains emulsifiers and give the final product a great texture.
Lemon, eucalyptus and peppermint essential oil- These essential oils have mosquito repellent properties.
