Save this one for the summer: Dr. Joseph Mercola's popular natural health newsletter has made available methods of reducing mosquito bites. These include Citronella essential oil, which can be diluted to about 10% in a carrier oil such as Grapeseed for application to the skin. Lavender Oil has been indicated for this use as well, and some say it may be better for direct skin application, whereas Citronella may best be used in a diffuser to protect a room or house.
