You will be saved once and for all! 10 effective spices against mosquitoes

You will be saved once and for all! 10 effective spices against mosquitoes

The summer season has just started. At last! Now we can enjoy the beach, nature walks, parties with friends, chirping birds, beautiful tan and ice cream.

Unfortunately, even the summer season has an element that spoils the fun of all these activities above.

It's about mosquitoes. The latter have had a wide media coverage this time due to the outbreak of the Zika virus.

For all of you who don't know, the Zika virus is spread to humans thanks to the bites of tiger mosquitoes that have been infected with the virus.

The most common symptoms of Zika are: skin spots and rashes, fever, joint pain, swelling and redness of the eyes. These symptoms usually last a few days to a week.

Mortality from the Zika virus has been rare, but the virus can cause brain development problems in fetuses when a pregnant woman is bitten by an infected mosquito.

According to data from the World Health Organization, Albania is ranked among 18 countries where the likelihood of the spread of the Zika virus is significant, thanks to the presence of these mosquito species.

In the markets there are many solutions against the problem of mosquitoes, but usually these solutions contain some chemicals that can have side effects on our health.

That's why AgroWeb decided to do some research about natural solutions against mosquito bites. Below you will find a list of 10 aromatic alternatives to the mosquito problem, which can be easily found in Albania.

Mix it with any odorless cream in a ratio of 1 to 10 and apply to all exposed areas of your body.

Add five to ten drops of essential oil to a glass of water and apply to areas not covered by clothing. You can also paint a piece of cotton with it and put it on the window to keep mosquitoes away.

Mosquitoes cannot stand the smell of lavender, whether it is fresh, dry or in oily form. Fortunately for us, lavender is used in aromatherapy treatments as a natural remedy for calmness and anxiety. You can use lavender on clothes, on the skin, or simply as a flower in the home.

Take five grams of clove seeds and boil them in a glass of water. 10 drops of this low-alcohol liquid are enough to apply to all exposed areas of the body.

If you have organized an outdoor activity, throw some juniper branches in the bubulak fire and the mosquitoes will not bother you.

Cedar oil is not only one of the most popular perfume ingredients, but also quite effective in repelling insects: mosquitoes, flies and cockroaches that hate its scent.

Oil made from the juice of the roots of sweet wormwood (a handful of this herb is brewed in 1.5 liters of water for about an hour and a half) is not only effective in treating wounds, but if applied to the skin can serve as a mosquito repellent.

One of the oldest medicinal plants has a paralyzing effect on the nerve cells of insects. So you can dry it and distribute it around the house.

9. Fresh basil or tomato leaves

Mosquitoes cannot tolerate the smell of these plants, so do not hesitate to use them.

According to scientific data, mosquitoes stay away from him or her who eats a lot of garlic. But remember that if you eat too much garlic, people will also stay away from you, so don't overdo it.

If the mosquito manages to bite you, you can do the following to get rid of that terrible feeling of endless itching.

You can put some honey on the bite area. However, you should be careful and try this at home, because honey can attract other insects.

You can use Aloe Vera. But fresh basil leaves also help by reducing inflammation. You can use a paste made from aspirin and water or a simple toothpaste.
