When out for a walk with your toddler, two environmental factors can ruin your child’s day: harmful UV rays and mosquitos. Harmful UV rays can be prevented with the help of a shade such as a stroller with a sun canopy or an umbrella, but mosquitos are typically trickier to repel.

There are plenty of species of mosquitos that can carry out harmful diseases such as dengue and malaria. These diseases can become a serious health issue, especially for young kids. Thankfully, there are natural repellents that can repel these pesky pests.

Whether you are going out for a hike, hanging out in the backyard, or just walking to the nearest local park, take a look at these five natural repellents that work best against mosquitoes and how to use them for your baby.

  1. Lavender

Lavender flowers are crushed to create a fragrance and oil that is effective in repelling mosquitoes. Lavenders are pretty easy to grow and can be cultivated in an outdoor garden or in indoor planters.

Simply crush the flowers and apply the extracted oil to bite-sensitive areas of the body, such as the ankles and the arms. You can also drop some lavender oil on a clean cloth and rub it onto your baby’s skin.

  1. Cinnamon oil

Cinnamon has properties that can repel mosquitos. It even has the ability to kill mosquito eggs, according to a 2004 study.

To make cinnamon oil, you will need the following:

  • One cup pure olive oil
  • One-fourth cup ground cinnamon

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add cinnamon, stir to combine, and simmer for about 3 minutes. Strain through a coffee filter and store it in an airtight jar or bottle.

Make sure to dilute cinnamon oil before using it as high concentrations can irritate the skin. To make a diluted 1 percent solution, mix 1/4 teaspoon of oil for every 4 ounces of water. You can spray the solution onto your baby’s skin or clothing, around your home, and onto upholstery or plants

  1. Thyme oil

Thyme is another staple pantry that can help in repelling mosquitoes away from your little angel. Similar to cinnamon oil, it needs to be brewed in a base oil, such as olive or jojoba oil. To create a useable thyme oil for the skin, mix 4 drops of thyme oil with every teaspoon of base oil. To create a spray, mix 5 drops of thyme oil with 2 ounces of water.

  1. Citronella

One of the most popular active ingredients in insect repellants in the market, citronella is a mix of herbs that repels mosquitoes thanks to its scent. A study has shown that the topical application of citronella can provide complete protection against three types of mosquitoes for up to two hours.

  1. Basil

Basil is not just for Italian cuisines. It is also an excellent herb that can repel pesky mosquitoes. When applied topically, it can effectively wart off mosquitoes for more than six hours.

To use, you can create your own basil oil by blending roughly chopped fresh basil and base oil, such as coconut and olive oil, in a food processor. Strain into a fine-mesh sieve with cheesecloth and store in an airtight bottle. You can also purchase basil essential oil online.

Similar to other essential oils, it is important to dilute the basil oil with water before spraying it on your baby’s skin and clothes.

These natural ingredients are far more efficient when it comes to repelling mosquitoes, as well as it is safe for your baby’s sensitive skin. If any rashes or blemishes occur, contact your pediatrician for skin allergy tests.
