Soon, temperature will rise in thermometers, and mosquitoes will start buzzing around your head every night. Their presence is not at all pleasant, especially when you want to spend your evenings outdoors, on the balcony or on the terrace. However, there are some very effective ways to keep mosquitos away and to relax quietly.
Cotton, vanilla and mint
Find a less deep jar, put 2-3 cotton balls in it, and then pour 2-3 tablespoons of essential vanilla oil over them. Put some fresh mint leaves over the cotton balls. Cover the jar with a piece of gauze, and place it on the table on the balcony or on the terrace. The mosquitoes can’t stand either the mint or the vanilla scent, so this combination is very successful in the fight against any insect.
Vodka and cloves
Mosquito sprays are very expensive and smell badly most of the times. That chemical odor can cause nausea, and, instead of enjoying fresh air, you will feel suffocated.
You need a spray bottle. Fill it with 300 ml of vodka and add a few drops of essential cloves or lavender oil. Mix well and spray the mixture around the area where you stay. You will spread a lovely and pleasant flavor which will keep mosquitoes away.
