Jun 3rd 2010 9:12PM Misquitos and many pesky critters hate Mint, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree Oil, Neem Oil, Coconut Oil, Lemongrass Oil, and other essential oils. You can do a search on the Internet for other oils they dislike.
You can mix any of these Essential oils (even Peppermint Extract from the market) with any base oil such as coconut, olive, your skin lotion, etc. and then rub it on your skin.
Many years ago, we would just pick Mint leaves in the yard, crumble them in our hand and rub them all over our skin. This would work even if we were perspiring. Then if you go swimming, it would be washed off and we would rub more leaves over our skin.
Thank you for reminding us of the Vitamin B1 tablets.
ALSO, there is a Flower Essence Combination Remedy called Flee Free, which helps with repelling pests and such. It is made by Green Hope Farm Flower Essences. at www.greenhopeessences.com
