"Food based" Mosquito Repellent

I've found an effective mosquito repellent is to cook up cinnamon and clove in a regular food oil (even using nicely ones that have gone 'out of date'). The problem is that it is a liquid that isn't always so easy to apply - it would be a lot better if I could make it 'thicker' as a kind of 'vaseline-type' salve.

Any ideas?
