How Can I Protect Myself with Home Remedies?
There are many ways to protect yourself from bug bites. Some of them are more natural than others. The following are some home remedies that you can use to keep the bugs away:
1) Lavender oil is a natural insect repellent and can be applied directly to your skin or clothing.
2) Plant-based oils, such as citronella, peppermint, lemongrass and eucalyptus, when used in a diffuser or as a spray around your home can help keep bugs away.
3) You can also fill your bathtub with water and add 1-2 cups of Epsom salt. This will make the water smell like sulfur which is not pleasant for insects and they will stay away.
How Do Body Lotion & Perfume Help with Repel Mosquitoes?

When you apply lotion or perfume, it is important that you avoid getting it on your clothes because this will attract mosquitoes.
