Having never been bothered by mosquitos in my life, this summer has been a wake up call to me on how annoying they can be and how much it itches after a bite. For some reason there are lots more around this summer and also they now seem to like the taste of me!
I have found my own little combo of repelling and treating the bites which seem to work really well and avoid any nasty ingredients so I thought I'd share with you my mosquito busting secrets!
Firstly just before dusk I dot essential oil of Eucalyptus citriodora, other wise known lemon eucalyptus, on my wrists, ankles and neck. This works like citronella to repel the mosquitos. Then if I have any bites I pop the Botanicals Soothing Lavender and Chamomile Balm on.
It really does help to calm, heal and soothe... Perfect way to 'naturally' fight the war against all these extra mosquitos.
