Summer is a time when mosquitos are at their worst. Many people can deal with mosquitos by using repellent, but others are worried about the DEET and dislike smelling like the spray. For the latter, Vitamin B1 could be a solution. Vitamin B1 can change the way a person smells to mosquitos and makes the person unappealing to bite. However, the Vitamin B1 does not change a person's smell to other humans. The research is not definitive, but Vitamin B1 causes no adverse effects so it could be worth a try if you want to avoid repellent this summer.

Key Takeaways:

  • -Vitamin B1 (also known as thiamine) is an essential vitamin your body needs. It can be found in foods such as yeast, oatmeal, brown rice, asparagus, kale, liver and eggs and is important in fighting
  • -As one of the water-soluble vitamins, any excess that your body doesn’t use gets flushed out when you urinate, so there’s no need to worry about taking too much.
  • -It doesn’t, however, change the way you smell to other humans, so don’t worry about smelling like old bread around your friends.

"But, if you’re like me at all and you not only want to stop smelling like the burnt remains of a chemical plant after using repellent, but also are scared of the adverse effects of DEET in sprays and are more prone to getting bit (seriously though, mosquitoes seemed to love me and only me at parties), then taking Vitamin B1 could be your saving grace."

Those in mosquito prone areas may not have to use toxic DEET to repel the bugs because the CDC has confirmed that lemon eucalyptus oil works just as well as an insect repellent and doesn't carry the neurotoxins that DEET does. Two recent scientific publications concluded that oil of lemon eucalyptus was as effective as repellents with small levels of DEET. This is good news for those who are looking for a less toxic alternative to protect them from bug bites.

Key Takeaways:

  • lemon-eucalyptus oil confirmed by CDC as effective insect repellent.
  • DEET is a neurotoxin and is found in most chemical insect repellents
  • chemicals found in DEET can be highly toxic to certain people

"when oil of lemon eucalyptus was tested against mosquitoes found in the US it provided protection similar to repellents with low concentrations of DEET"
