Anti-Mosquito Oil: TerraShield by doTerra
Have you discovered the power of essential oils yet? These magical plant extractions make up my entire medicine cabinet. You would be shocked at the uses for all these wonderful oils. The TerraShield blend by doTerra is outstanding for preventing mosquitos and other outdoor pests. It contains a blend of essential oils such as ylang ylang, cedarwood, catnip, lemon eucalyptus, litsea, arborvitae, nootka, and vanilla bean absolute.
You can use this oil by applying it topically to your arms, legs, and neck before going outside. Reapply every few hours or as needed. You can also diffuse this oil on your porch to create a nice aromatic barrier against the little critters nibbling your body! Place three to four drops in a diffuser of your choice. Spray it around your window seals, door and tent while camping. It has a herbaceous, woody, pungent scent. This TerraShield blend can be used by anyone in the family. There is a possible skin sensitivity you may encounter with this blend. Consult your physician if you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
