Baby oil and cloves are readily available and safe ingredients, making this DIY repellent a practical choice. The baby oil acts as a gentle and nourishing base for your skin, while the cloves provide natural repellent properties to keep flying insects away.

Now, let’s get started on creating this homemade repellent so you can enjoy the great outdoors without any interruptions.

What You’ll Need

  • 1 Container with a dropper (preferably dark glass)
  • 35 ml of Baby oil (or olive oil)
  • 6 Cloves


  1. Take the container and make sure it has a dropper. It’s best to use a dark glass container to preserve the repellent.
  2. Pour 35 ml of baby oil (or olive oil) into the container. You can use any baby oil you have at home.
  3. Add 6 cloves to the container.
  4. Close the container tightly and give it a good shake. This will help infuse the oil with the repellent properties of the cloves.


  1. Apply a few drops of the homemade repellent onto your exposed skin before heading outdoors.
  2. Gently massage the oil into your skin to ensure even coverage.
  3. Reapply every few hours or as needed to maintain its effectiveness.

Now, you’re ready to enjoy nature without worrying about those pesky bugs. Say goodbye to annoying insect bites and hello to uninterrupted outdoor adventures!
