DH has been driving me batty for the past few days wanting a Citronella lotion to combat the killer mosquitos at work. I've been reading and searching but have come across conflicting info, as to whether Citronella should be used alone. I'm considering a blend of Citronella, Lavender & Lemongrass since this is only for his use. Anyone think this may be enough to suit his needs and quiet him down :rolleyes2 ? I'm open to any and all opinions/suggestions, at this point.

You can buy a premade mix of EOs from OT that are said to be effective in repelling mosquitoes and insects. And it doesn't smell as bad as citronella IMO nor is it a feminine scent that a man would not wear. You can also use this in soap and body sprays.

My son is serving in Iraq second tour and i made a lotion and sent it to him with Citronella, Lavender, Lemongrass , patchouli and either sandlewood or texas cedar. He likes the texas cedar better. I think it smells manly and the other soliders in his unit love it too. They have bad bitting buggies over there and they stay away now.
