Baby Oil Mosquito Repellent

Did you know baby oil and dish washing liquid can be used to make a mosquito repellent lotion? It’s true. And it works great! This mosquito repellent is safe to use on the whole family, even in the ears and on sensitive skin. I love this stuff because it works well and smells good too. A few things to remember: don’t put it in your eyes and be sure to remember that some essential oils are considered toxic by the FDA (such as Sweet Orange Oil). The best mosquito repellent for babies is not often found in stores. Babies can be sensetive to the chemicals found in store bought repellents so instead of buying repellents, we need to make our own with baby oil and a few other ingredients. This will not only save you money but also keep your child safe from pesticides used in store bought products. Mosquitoes buzz not just to disturb us but also to create their habitat. When we apply baby oil on the skin, mosquitoes stay away from you as they find its smell irritating and irritating stuff keeps them away from you.

    Baby Oil Mosquito Repellent

    What’s in it?

    Baby oil is the primary ingredient in this spray. It acts as a carrier for the other ingredients, which are all natural. This is ideal because you’ll want to keep your skin safe from harmful chemicals if you’re going to be spraying this on yourself and your children all day long. The ingredients that make up baby oil include mineral oil, lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, geranium oil and tea tree oil. Other essential oils in this mosquito repellent include lemon and vanilla extract (for their pleasant scents), peppermint essential oil (because it’s naturally anti-bacterial), citronella (which repels mosquitoes) and rosemary essential oil (which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties).

    Pros and Cons.


    Baby oil is affordable, natural and effective. It works well on mosquitoes and other flying insects.


    The baby oil mosquito repellent can cause skin irritation for those who have sensitive skin. You should use it with caution if you are pregnant or nursing; consult your doctor before using any essential oils during pregnancy.

    Making your own baby oil.

    The first step to creating your own baby oil repellent is to gather the ingredients. You will need:

    • Baby oil (about 10 ounces)
    • A 2-quart saucepan or larger pot with a lid, preferably nonstick if possible
    • A candy thermometer or other thermometer that can be used on an open flame and can withstand temperatures of up to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

    Once you have everything ready, mix your ingredients in the top of a double boiler over low heat. If you don’t have access to a double boiler, use your saucepan and add about 3 inches of water in its bottom (be sure not to get any water into your mixture). Bring this mixture up to 200 degrees F (93 degrees C), stirring occasionally but being careful not to splash yourself with any hot oil while doing so. When it reaches temperature, remove from heat and allow it to cool completely before pouring into storage containers that are smaller than 1 cup capacity so they are easier for children to hold without spilling anything out at their level above floor level where many mosquitoes breed around homes during summer months in North America.”

    Baby Oil Mosquito Repellent Recipe!

    The main ingredient in this recipe is baby oil. Baby oil has been used as a mosquito repellent for years, but only recently has it been associated with the harmful effects of DEET. The good news is that this recipe will not only keep you from being bitten by mosquitoes, but also help to moisturize your skin and provide a nice fragrance.


    • 2 tablespoons of baby oil (or mineral oil)
    • 3 drops of lavender essential oil or other preferred fragrance

    Baby oil mosquito repellent is a tested repellent for mosquitoes, but you have to use it properly

    • Test it on a small area before using it all over. Check the ingredients in baby oil to make sure they’re safe for your skin and the environment.
    • Use it in the right way: use a small amount, don’t rub it in, apply it to exposed skin. Rubbing can irritate sensitive areas like eyes or noses and cause rashes if you’re not careful when applying it to your child’s body.
    • How To Use It On Children
    • Apply only a small amount of baby oil repellent onto exposed areas of the skin such as arms, legs and hands (but not faces). Ensure all crevices are covered because mosquitoes love hiding in those dark places!
    • Do not use on eyes or inside ears – if accidentally applied, flush with clean running water immediately; do not wash off with soap which may irritate the eye further causing infection!
