How to Make a Homemade mosquito Repellent Cream

We are in raining season and we will have alot of mosquitoes around

Regardless of whether you tend to be bitten or not,
you have to be aware that there are a number of diseases
being carried by the mosquito.

One thing you might not know is Mosquitoes does not only cause malaria
but it also cause dengue and west nile virus.

There are a number of very effective antiviral herbs or drugs
that can be used to recover from illnesses such as these,
but it is much better to avoid them altogether.

Follow my advice and make this Mosquito Repellent Cream

Ingredients
¼ cup plus 1 Tbsp stearic acid powder or beeswax pellets

¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp coconut oil

¾ tsp baking soda

¾ cup distilled water

¼ tsp Vitamin E oil

10 drops each of two of the following: citronella, eucalyptus, rosemary, lavender (if you’d like to repel ticks), pennyroyal

Instructions
Melt the beeswax and/or stearic acid, Vitamin E, and coconut oil over low heat.

I like a double boiler or a large metal bowl on the lowest setting (around 100°F) in the oven.

Heat the distilled water to almost boiling, remove from heat, and stir in the baking soda.

This next part is the tricky part.

Just like you are making homemade mayonnaise,
pour water slowly into oil while mixing with a hand blender.

It can be helpful to have a partner for this step.

You will see the oil turn white immediately if you have
successfully achieved emulsification.

Immediately place pan in an ice water bath in the sink.

Add essential oils.

I prefer a combination of citronella
and eucalyptus for general insect repellent.

Mix occasionally until evenly and completely cooled.
Place into the jar of your choice and label jar well.
