7 Natural Repellents That Protects You Against Dengue, Other Mosquito-borne Diseases  A number of diseases--such as  dengue, malaria, chikungunya virus, among others--can be caused by mosquito bite. With this, people should know the natural repellents that are best in driving mosquitoes away.    Advertisement  1. Cinnamon oil   According to a study conducted in Taiwan, cinnamon oil can kill off mosquito eggs and can also act as a repellent against adult mosquitoes.    To make a diluted one percent solution, one should mix 1/4 teaspoon (or 24 drops) of oil for every four ounces of water.   2. Soybean oil   The University of Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory disclosed that soybean-based products could provide long-lasting protection from mosquitoes.          3. Tea tree oil   A popular essential oil from Australia, tea tree oil is known for its antiseptic, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Recent studies, on the other hand, suggest that tea tree oil is also an effective insect repellent.   4. Lotus   According to the Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Medicine, lotus is an effective mosquito repellent that also helps kill mosquito larvae.    Since lotus grows in water, it is a good option as a natural repellent in backyard ponds other than something that is applied topically.        5. Citronella   Citronella is an ingredient in many mosquito repellents. Candles made of citronella can provide up to 50 percent extra protection against mosquitoes.   6. Garlic   Mosquitoes cannot stand garlic. Eating lots of fresh garlic or taking it in capsules are both good mosquito repellent.   7. Mint   If you want a mosquito repellent that smells nice, tastes nice, and looks nice, then you should use mint.   For more protection against mosquitoes, you may also consider making a fly trap:   This article was filed under Health, Health news, Healthy life news, Newshealth, Healthy Living, Health blogs, Health benefits, Food, Natural, Mosquito-borne diseases, and Mosquito repellent.
