Repelling Mosquitos

June 17, 2014 Julianne Bonnet

Summer is here and mosquito repelling soap is in the news! Two students from Burkina Faso have developed an anti-malarial soap that works primarily by repelling mosquitos.

One of the primary ingredients in the award winning soap is lemongrass essential oil, something that has long been known to help keep the biting pests away. But lemongrass is just one of many essential oils that acts as a first barrier against mosquitos.

Citronella oil, peppermint essential oil, lemon essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil and lavender essential oil are some other oils that are just as effective. Faerie Goatmother carries a variety of soaps with mosquito repelling oils. Try our Lemongrass Eucalyptus BarPeppermint Poppy Seed Bar, our Rosemary Lemon Eucalyptus Bar, our Lavender Oatmeal or Lavender Patchouli Bars.

Better yet is a lotion scented with a repellant oil, which will allow the scent to stay on the skin longer, affording a greater span of protection. Faerie Goatmother offers custom scented lotions, so you can decide which mosquito repelling scent best suits you.
