At home we always use my homemade mosquito repellant spray. But since the spray has to be reapplied every 2 hours we were looking for another product when we go outside. You can see the recipe here.
My doctor recommended Odomos Naturals. I have tries Chicco and few other foreign brands but they are very mild for Indian mosquitoes. So we started using this product during my daughters walks especially during evenings.
I did not have much expectations from this product but it turned out to be the opposite. It worked very well outside our house, as there is a lot of open space and my daughter always gets bit by one or two mosquitoes everyday when she goes out for her walks. Though they claim its totally safe for babies, I would recommend you to avoid the face area.
We apply it on her hands, legs and a little near the ears. Mosquitoes are attracted to the smell of ear wax and they always loiter around the ear. So always apply some cream near the babies ears. You can even dab a little eucalyptus oil around the ear.
- They claim it has aleovera and citronella.
- Its endoresed by Natural Integrated Medical Association.
- The tube is only Rs 40.
- Its not greasy.
So do try it out and let me know if it works for you.
