Aug 10, 2011
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the most effective natural oil that repels mosquitoes is oil of lemon eucalyptus that works as effective as DEET in mosquito repellents. However, this ingredient should be used with care as it can become toxic in large amounts.
There is also a number of other essential oils that repel mosquitoes, such as  citronella oil, cinnamon oil, rosemary oil, lemongrass oil, clove oil, geranium oil, lavender oil and others.
