Mosquitoes are annoying insects that can bother and bite any person from babies to adults. Although generally harmless, mosquito bites can be itchy and make your child miserable. However, depending on where you live, mosquitos can also carry diseases such as dengue and malaria.
However, you should never use commercial bug repellents in your baby’s room or even near him. They are full of chemicals that cause serious health problems including cancer.
Instead try this natural repellent which will protect your babies without harming them:
How to do it?
- Try this while you’re giving your child a bath before bed
- Fill the child’s tub
- Pour in 5 drops of lavender essential oil
- Give him a bath like usual
Lavender essential oil will naturally make mosquitoes flee because they hate the smell of it. The baby will sleep well (and you will too).
Don’t use the essential oil directly on the skin of the baby.
