DIY mosquito repellent for kids

The beauty of monsoons is best adored by children. Making boats, flaunting their fancy rain gear, drenching in the rain, and eating their favorite food, they tend to enjoy every bit of it. But as a parent, the rise of mosquito menace during the monsoon season can be quite scary for you. These little creatures transmit fatal diseases like dengue, chikungunya, malaria, etc., making it important for you to take extra care of your kids. Applying mosquito repellent products is the most recommended solution to keep your kids safe from mosquitoes and other deadly insects. 

However, the daily use of commercial mosquito repellent options available in the market is unsafe for skin application owing to its toxicity. Parents should avoid applying chemical-based commercial mosquito repellents to keep their kids free from mosquito bites. Making your mosquito repellents at home is the only solution to keeping your kids safe from mosquito bites and enjoying monsoons to the fullest.

Take a look at how you can make DIY safe-to-use mosquito repellents at home for protecting your family against the deadly mosquito bites:
