    Natural Insect Repellents

    Zzzzt!! Help!!

    Does anyone have any ideas and information about natural or organic insect repellents, especially something that would be safe for children? Many commercial repellents contain DEET which may be cancer-causing.

    Cedar Oil
    Try a cedar oil spray. I get it at PetSmart & use it on the dogs, cats & kids - it may seem a bit pricey but one bottle lasts for awhile. There may be another source for it among herbal shops, natural food stores, etc. One tip for anyone using it for fleas - it's a REPELLANT and works best if used before you see any fleas. If you've already got fleas, the same company makes a shampoo.

    Rubbing Alcohol
    I found out many years ago, when I was a young teenager, that just splashing plain rubbing alcohol on me and allowing it to dry would deter mosquitoes from biting me. I am allergic to mosquito bites and develop huge welts everywhere they bite me. With the alcohol, they never bit me. And once it dries, it leaves a pleasant odor on the skin, not repugnant at all. Thought this might help. And it only costs less than 50 cents a bottle!

    Vaporub

    This is going to floor you, but one of the best insect repellents I have found and I am in the woods every day, is Vick's Vaporub. I rub it on my pants and legs to ward off ticks. If you can tolerate the smell it's pretty good.

    Marigolds in the Yard
    There are several things to do when trying to protect yourself and kids from those nasty bugs in the yard during the summer. One thing to do is plant marigolds around the yard, the flowers give off a smell that bugs do not like, so plant some in that garden also to help ward off bugs without using insecticides. Try putting a bounce dryer sheet on your belt or in your sock, the sheet will mask your smell and ward off the bugs.

    Marine's Choice
    I don't know how "organic" you want to go, or if it's just DEET you're trying to avoid. But here in Jacksonville, NC, home of Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base, our "tough guy" Marines who spend a great deal of time "camping out" say that the very best mosquito repellant you can use is Avon Skin-So-Soft bath oil mixed about half and half with alcohol. I've tried it, and I have to admit it works just as well if not better than the commercial sprays. Actually, I just saw an ad on TV this week for Avon's own Skin-So-Soft insect repellant. I'm assuming it's made about the same way, but it may turn out to be less expensive in the long run to mix your own. An added plus is that it smells great too.

    Homemade Recipe
    20 drops Eucalyptus oil
    20 drops Cedarwood oil
    10 drops Tea Tree oil
    10 drops Geranium oil
    2 oz. carrier oil ( such as Jojoba )

    Mix together in a 4 oz. container. Apply to skin as needed avoiding the eye area. Keep out of reach of children. Test on a small area of skin for sensitivities . Experiment with different percentages of essential oil.

    Vanilla
    One of the best natural insect repellants that I've discovered is made from the clear real vanilla (not the grocery store vanilla extract which is mostly alcohol). This is the pure vanilla that is sold in Mexico. It's cheap there if you know of someone that lives there or in the US close to the border. If not, health food stores usually carry it or can order it for you. I use it half vanilla and half water and find that it works great for mosquitoes and ticks, don't know about other insects. It's nice that you don't smell like a chemical plant but a cookie! I cannot use chemical insecticides, so I love the way this works and I hope you and your kids will also.

    Moth Balls
    To the person who needed natural insect repellent. This is not natural but if you put out moth ball in the yard where children can't find them, they are great for mosquito. Or make a mixture of 1part baby powder, 1 part flower of sulfur(found at drug stores), 1 part cornstarch. Mix in a resealable bag and sprinkle on the ground. Repels most bugs.

    from HGTV
    I am testing a preparation suggested by HGTV's Paul James. "Finely chop a dozen garlic cloves into 4 ounces of mineral oil. Soak for a day or 2, strain it and add 4 drops of dishwasher liquid. Dilute with half cup of water and pour into sprayer." I used a coffee filter to strain it (sort of messy) and it smells out loud. So far I have used it on two plants and it appears non-damaging. Incidentally, I planted garlic cloves next to each rose bush and that appears ot have repelled insects. That is a widely known practice, I gather. Incidentally, I use old soap and garden spray bottles with no harmful residue.

    Catnip Concoction
    Make your own by filling a quart jar with some herbs from the mint family like catnip, spearmint, pennyroyal and then cover with apple cider vinegar. Shake twice a day for two weeks. Strain and either rub on or spray on.
    Gary

    Lavender Oil
    I just read about a pleasant solution, though, that worked for me last weekend in the mountains (lots of biting bugs, but they pretty much left me alone.) Use lavender oil, and dab it on your pulse points (I used it on my wrists, behind my ears, temples, behind my knees, and on my ankles). Smells wonderful, but apparently the insects don't think so.

    Bug-Proof Your Yard
    There are many insect repellents that contain "pyrethum," which is actually a natural extract of the marigold plant. It is very safe for use around children and pets, but it is quite expensive.

    You may also want to regularly spray your plants and grass with a soap and water solution. This will have 3 effects: 1) it will dehydrate most bugs and kill them without chemicals, 2) it will help to keep your grass and plants clean of pollution and make them healthier and 3) it will soften your soil which mean you won't have to water as much. Use a hose-end sprayer filled with 1 cup of any cheap dishwashing soap for your grass or 1 tablespoon of soap in a hand-held sprayer for your plants.

    How to Make Homemade Insect Repellent Oil

    By leaper
    Article Rating: (4 Ratings)

    Making your own insect repellent is fast and easy. This repellent really works!

    Difficulty: Moderately Easy

    InstructionsThings You'll Need:
    1 part bay leaves
    4 parts pennyroyal
    2 parts rosemary
    1 part eucalyptus leaves
    Enough olive oil or other high quality oil to cover the herbs. Then top with another inch or two of oil.
    Double boiler
    Cheesecloth or muslin

    Step 1 Wilt the fresh herb leaves or use dried herbs.

    Step 2 Cover with enough oil to completely submerge the herbs, plus another one or two inches on top of that. Place the herbs and oil in a double boiler, and cover with a tight fitting lid. Heat slowly for one half to one hour, checking often to make sure the oil is not over heating.

    Step 3 Once the oil and herbs have heated sufficiently, you can strain the mixture. Line a strainer or sieve with cheesecloth or muslin. Pour the mixture through the cloth. Reserve this oil. In a separate container, press the remaining oil out of the herbs. Do not mix together the two separate oil pressings. The second one will have a higher concentration of water and sediment. It is still usable, but not the high quality as the first pressing. Now you can add a drop or two of pennyroyal essential oil or eucalyptus essential oil to strengthen the smell in the first oil pressing. This is in addition to the dried pennyroyal and eucalyptus.

    Step 4 Now you can bottle the oil. Keep in a cool place preferably a dark place. It does not have to be refrigerated, but if allowed to heat up too much, will deteriorate.

    Step 5 This oil is safe for human and animal use.
