Can you give me a recipe using jojoba oil that will repel mosquitoes naturally?
Q. What are some natural ways to repel mosquitoes? A. It’s not for everyone but as an avid hiker i swear by rubbing a garlic clove pinched to get the juiceflowing all over exposed skin. this is better, and cheaper than dangerous deet products. also avoid perfumed soaps, cosmetics, hair goop or anything that smells even like deodorant A. I have been making a tea out of herbs from my herb garden of cat mint and rosemary and it is working for me! I just cut the leaves and stems up in a cup and pour in a cup of boiling water and let it steep for an hour or so, then keep it in spray bottle in the fridge. Also, tea tree oil works. A.

The only rider was that they had to be the small bananas (lady fingers, we called them). Don’t know how you feel about bananas, but it seemed to work for us 🙂 Cheers – Hush A.

A long story that started in 1855 when it was first discovered in California, and not until recently was used in cosmetics instead of the oil of whales that was used extensively in skin care products and cosmetics. After outlawing the hunting and harvesting of whales, much research was done to find more suitable replacements for the skin and hair care industries. Jojoba oil was found to be very similar but even more effective. Jojoba oil is a type of wax that is produced as a liquid at room temperature. The ‘oil’ has similar chemical structure to the sebum oil that our skin produces naturally which makes it highly absorbable. When used on the skin forms a very thin, non-greasy lipoid layer. The oil is excellent for people who suffer from sensitive skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema. It aids in softening the skin and when applied to the hair will increase its shine. It also significantly reduces trans-epidermal water loss, without totally blocking the transpiration of gases
