Bye bye, mosquitoes! Natural remedy to keep theme away from your home

Like every year during the summer, the mosquito has the annoying tendency to invite itself into our house or onto our terrace. There are more than 65 species, including the tiger mosquito but also other mosquitoes that can transmit diseases.

They can be a real cross, ruining our evenings outdoors during the warmer months or giving us sleepless nights: mosquitoes are very annoying. To ward them off, we often use industrial repellents, full of chemical substances that are certainly not good for our health.

In this article we explain how to repel mosquitoes with a simple natural ingredient: vinegar. It is widely used in cooking, but also in natural medicine thanks to its antibacterial properties. The intense, penetrating aroma of vinegar is unpleasant to mosquitoes, and acts as a natural repellent .

Instructions

Placing a glass filled with white wine vinegar on a surface, such as the nightstand, can keep mosquitoes away for several hours. The aroma given off by the vinegar has a repellent action on small insects.

To increase the repellent properties of vinegar, try preparing a remedy by mixing it with lemongrass, which in turn is one of the most effective natural products against insects. Pour a few drops of lemongrass essential oil into a glass filled with vinegar.

Another natural repellent you can combine with vinegar is eucalyptus oil. Again, pour 10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil into a glass or cup full of vinegar, to place on the table or bedside table to keep mosquitoes away.
