Deet or "diethyltoluamide". is the most common substance that reppels mosquitoes because it confuses the "smelling" sensors of the mosquitoes. That's why they do not smell you anymore and you don't get stung all the time or at least not so much.. This product has been used for decades and is still the most effective insect repellent which has a few side effects. It is for sale as gel, spray or lotion. The law states that a pesticide is allowed if it does not cause unacceptable harm to mankind and the environment if the pesticide is known and has been approved, it will receive an approval number, which must be stated on the packaging. But like I mentioned before there are some side-effects with the use of DEET such as neurological complaints, and if the stuff is being used too vigorously in a sealed, unventilated space. Then people can get a headache or suffer from amnesia. There are also complaints about DEET and skin rash, but it only occurs with people who are hypersensitive to DEET, or even to the lubricant with which that substance is created.

NOTE: This recipe gives a large amount of oil / crème. Do not use any tools that you use in your kitchen every day (pots, bowls) in terms of hygiene and quality of the oils. I always use separate materials that I use only for recipes for external care. Always store them hygienically.
How To Prepare Your Natural Mosquito Repellent Oil / Crème
Mix all the ingredients with the coconut fat or oil and Let the substance melt above a pan of boiling water. If the coconut oil is completely melted, add the oil one by one and be sure you stir well. Pour the oil through a funnel into a clean glass or jar and let it cool off well. Depending on the outside temperatures, the oil will lightly solidify or remain oil. Store the oil in a cool, dark place. In each case use the oil by stirring and apply thinly to the skin. Beware of sensitive parts and areas such as the eyes, lips and spots where the skin is thinner. Always try out on a very small amount of skin. Spread a small layer and leave for a few hours. Check out after three or four hours if no results have occurred. If you see redness, rash or you experience a itchy and / or burning sensation, do not use the oil / crème. You may be hypersensitive to certain oils. Also be carefull with the use of citronella oil in the sun.
