    Mosquitos love me!!!!! And my dog too. :) After years of wasting money on store bought products, I finally found a natural, non chemical recipe. I spray my short hair dog shoulder/back area and grand kids.

    I just now made a new batch of home made mosquito repellent, as follows.
    10 drops Lemon Eucalyptus oil
    100 drops Witch Hazel
    Directions; Put ingredients in to small spray bottle(glass preferred).

    I like the smell of Eucalyptus. This recipe should be ok for a baby as well I imagine? Better than bathing the infant in deet atleast. Thanks for the information!

    NO, not for babies due to the witch hazel. Baby might rub their eyes and witch hazel can burn their skin. Also allergies can be very bad if you are allergic to witch hazel or eucalyptus.
