The essential oils in natural mosquito repellants primarily work by blocking mosquitoes’ sense of smell – thereby making it difficult for them to land on human skin. Similarly, the chemical DEET repels insects by disrupting their sense of smell. Studies have shown natural repellents to work as effectively as DEET, but they evaporate quickly and need to be applied more frequently. However, according to the National Pesticide Information Center, DEET can cause skin irritations and other side effects. That is why many clients prefer our natural mosquito protection plan.

Is Natural Mosquito Repellent Effective?
As just noted, scientific studies have proven natural mosquito repellents to be as effective as their chemical counterparts. In 2016, an American College of Clinical Pharmacy study found that certain essential oils ranked just behind DEET and picaridin in terms of effectively repelling mosquitoes. Recently, the essential oil lemon eucalyptus was registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a safer and effective mosquito repellent.
