Use Citronella Soap as Mosquito Repellent

I tried the 50/50 baby oil and vinegar as a mosquito repellent and I still got bitten. I tried using citronella soap and put it all on my legs and arms and the mosquitoes did not bite me at all. Just put water on the citronella soap and spread it all over the exposed legs/arms. Do not rinse it off. I am so happy and I don't have to use the chemical spray "Off" on my body anymore. Best of luck to all who get mosquito bites.

I'm wondering if the eucalyptus oil is the active ingredient. I have crushed citronella leaves and rubbed the pure juice on my arms. It did nothing to repel mosquitoes.

What is citronella soap and in what form do you buy it and where? Is it spendy? AZ skeeters love to munch on me at night and in the triple digits. I hate to put on long clothing. Thank you much.
