Summers have set in and so have mosquitoes — small bite, big threat from these winged creatures which spread dengue and malaria. Here are some ways to keep mosquitoes at bay.
Neem oil: Rub some neem oil mixed with equal quantity of coconut oil to ward off mosquitoes for eight hours.
Camphor: Lighting camphor in a closed room for around twenty minutes can ward off mosquitoes.
Tulsi: A tulsi plant near your window will prevent breeding of mosquitoes and also keep them away.
Garlic: Boil garlic and spray the water in your room (or on yourself if you can bear the smell) to keep it mosquito-free.
Tea tree oil: Use a vapouriser with this oil to drive away mosquitoes.
Lavender: This not only smells great but keeps away mosquitoes too. Spritz it in your room or apply a few drops of this oil mixed with a cream on your body.
