Bug me not – homeopathic mosquito repellant

Exotic places come at a price! They are called mosquitos. Many paediatricians and pharmacists advise against using any off-the-counter mosquito repellants on babies under 6 months of age. That’s why natural ingredients are the safest alternative. Free of harmful additives and ingredients, whichcan be easily absorbed via the skin intomosquito repellant wrapped up a human’s body, natural products not only protect you but may also give your body the benefits of nature.

I found this brilliant insect repellant butter at The Clinic – with no strong smell, and a beautiful texture, my baby was mosquito free the whole season! I’m actually in the habit of using it every time my baby is out exploring the grass in our backyard or in the park.

It comes so prettily wrapped, that you’ll just want to buy it because it looks so pretty. But you won’t be disappointed so don’t worry!

Still worried about keeping your baby safe from mosquitos, then read the top tips other Ammis and khalas swear by.

Tips for fighting mosquitos

Living in or visiting Pakistan? Mosquitos can bother your child in any tropical country. Check out these tips that ammis and khalas swear by:

Homeopathic medicine

“There is a homeopathic ointment called Calendumed Salbe. It is safe for babies.”

Mosquito nets

“I have a mosquito net for my stroller, the one night I didn’t use it, I tried to keep her as covered as possible: long sleeves, socks etc but still poor baby got 10 bites on her face”

Johnson’s mosquito repellant

“A friend of mine swear by the mosquito repellent that Johnsons has. Never tried it. But i think it’s odorless and quite effective despite being mild.”

Aloe Vera

“Use fresh aloe vera. Cut a chunk off and peel off the tough skin. Rub the jelly like inside all over the area of the bite. S would get terrible bites that would erupt and leave marks. This made a world of difference. If you don’t have fresh aloe vera you can get this aloe vera extract gel. Its non medicated and works almost as well.”

Basil and tansy

“It’s a little-known fact that mosquitoes hate basil and tansy. Keep those plants in your yard and around your porch”.
