Can Adding It To Your Soap Protect Customers From Mosquitoes?

In May of 2023, a study came out that indicated mosquitoes do not like the scent of coconut. That means this scent may be a natural way to repel mosquitoes. The belief is that due to the fats in coconut, mosquitos are more likely to stay away. Further research is needed to determine if the scent does really repel these pests and if adding coconut oil to soap can aid in this task.

Are There Other Scents You Can Add to Soap to Repel Pests?
