mosquito repellent

Given what we know about individual body constitutions and herbal energetics, any thoughts on formulating mosquito repellents? I am selling herbal products at a local farmers' market, and while I have my good old plantain-infused oil for a remedy, some people also ask for repellents- I do have a yarrow salve for such, but I also work with essential oils, so have a bit more to play with. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have always used a bit of Eucalyptus oil along the brim of my hat, and the cuffs of my shirt sleeves and pants...and find it works quite well.
