Whether you’re at the cottage relaxing or just locked inside your Edmonton home (we’ve heard the stories of not being able to go outside without being attacked this summer), Well.ca is the place to order bug repellent and we’ll deliver it right to your front door!
Natural Mosquito Repellents:
I must admit that when the mosquitoes are biting, I tend to just bathe myself in DEET products but I understand how many Canadians feel differently. Whether you’re dousing small children, you’re pregnant or you just try to avoid unnecessary chemicals, there are natural alternatives on the market. Well.ca carries Buzz Away which includes pure, natural essential oils including cedarwood, citronella, peppermint, eucalyptus and lemongrass.
Some Canadians make their own natural mosquito repellent using a variety of essential oils. There are many species of mosquitoes and different oils repel different ones. Here are some of the oils that are commonly used:
- Citronella Oil
- Eucalyptus Oil
- Cinnamon Oil
- Castor Oil
- Rosemary Oil
- Cedarwood Oil
- Peppermint Oil
- Clove Oil
- Geranium Oil
Make sure not to forget a carrier oil such as Olive oil because these essential oils are potent and can hurt the skin.

Muskol is the brand that I remember from childhood and still use to this day. What can you say about Muskol? It smells bad but it works!
