When I was little, we used pure vanilla...not vanilla extract. Not only did it work, we smelt good too!
If you do get bit by a mosquito, put Vicks Vapor Rub on it. It takes away the itch and sting!
I know you put no extract, but is that PURE vanilla extract and not the imitation vanilla extract? I had heard it was the pure vanilla extract.
