Now I have tested the use of Lavender Essential Oil as a mosquito repellent personally myself. A week ago, we had company over. We were sitting outside talking and enjoying the summers cool evening breeze and feeding the mosquito's. Everyone was getting attacked by mosquito's ( they love me!) I went in the house and grabbed my lavender essential oil and dabbed it by my ears, on my wrists, and on the back of my knee. I then passed my beloved bottle of Lavender essential oil around to my guests to apply to themselves. Immediately the mosquito's stopped attacking all of us! We sat outside for several hours after applying the lavender essential oil and didn't have to reapply it once.
Bonus benefit is that if you forgot to put on your lavender essential oil before going outside, and get a mosquito bite, you can apply lavender oil to the bite to stop the itching and swelling. Lavender essential oil will heal the bite faster because of the anti inflammatory and disinfectant properties.
Other benefits of lavender essential oil are:
eliminates nervous tension, pain reliever,anti-fungal, stops pain from sunburn and takes the redness away, disinfectant, enhances blood circulation, treats respiratory problems, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, bug repellent, stops headaches, helps you fall asleep, helps depression issues, clears acne, balances hormones, heals digestive problems, reduces puffiness under the eyes and dark circles, helps stop seasonal allergy attacks, heals wounds, and so much more!
