Eucalyptus has a strong smell that masks the body odor to keep mosquitoes and bugs away. Since mosquitoes are attracted to body odor, they won’t have a chance to be around. Eucalyptus will not only repel mosquitoes and other bugs, but it can also help to itchiness, reduce redness and inflammation caused by bug bites.
To make a simple mosquito repellent spray using Eucalyptus – In a bottle, add 1/4 cup filtered water and 1/4 cup witch hazel. Mix it well and add in 10+ drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Mix it well and add it to a spray bottle. Spray it on your clothes or bed before sleeping or any time of the day to keep mosquitoes away. You can also spray it near windows or doors to prevent mosquitoes from coming in.
