Citronella

The Citronella scent is known to repel mosquitoes,
You can just put a few drops in a diffuser or burner at night for a mosquito-free sleep

Please note that citronella is not recommended for pregnant women.

Lemon

When outside, you can simply cut a fresh lemon to half and rub your skin with its juice, it will soothe the skin and prevent more bites.

Lavender

In case you are already bitten, rub a few drops of Lavender essential oil to stop the itching and heal the skin.
