5. Cinnamon Oil
This is fantastic way to not only avoid getting bitten but to actually kill mosquito eggs! Mix 4 ounces of water with 24 drops of cinnamon oil. It is important not to add more cinnamon oil than this, and you should never apply it directly to your skin without diluting it first.
Place your mixture in a spray bottle and apply it to your skin and clothing. It is also wise to spray this homemade remedy on to your plants, outside upholstery and any area where you will be spending a lot of time.
