Natural Mosquito Repellents

A guide of a few plants I've grown and used to repel mosquitoes naturally.

Natural mosquito repellents are helpful for cutting back on using toxic mosquito repellent to avoid getting mosquito bites, something we seem to have a steady stream of during the warm months. Between the picnics, swimming and other outdoor activities that we squeeze into those 3 months, we're lucky not to be eaten alive by mosquitos. Here are a few of the plants I've kept in my garden in over the years to help me get rid of pesty mosquitoes throughout the summer. My goal was to have

Lantana

After reading about the organic natural volatile compounds that are emitted from this plant I thought I'd give it a try myself. I found I was pleased with the results. That year seemed to have rendered much less mosquito bites on most everyone in my family, including the little folks that are always outside. I had read about a study conducted in Tanzania, wherein a village they placed this plant in front of windows and screens to study it's effectiveness in keeping mosquitoes away. This is due to a substance referred to as a-pinene, but whatever it's called I'm very grateful for it.

Sacred Basil

I like sprinkling some of the seeds from this plant in some of the areas of my yard that I know have a tendency to create pooling of water. From what I read in an alternative magazines I carried in my health food store, doing that would kill mosquito larvae. I found that it did cut back on the total amount of how much we were bothered by bites throughout the summer as a whole.

Thyme

After rubbing the secretions from the thyme plant in my garden onto my skin and waiting for those pesty mosquitoes to take a bite, I was pleasantly surprised by what I found. I watched them land, and then promptly take off in no time. I liked to keep a bag filled with this plant around and have my family rub themselves with a handful when they were spending a lot of time outside.

Rose Scented Monarda

Having spoke with a good friend that is a botanist, I found out that this plant contains high levels of a substance that is used in many mosquito repellents called geranoil and I found that rubbing it over my skin, then waiting for the mosquitoes to strike was all the proof I needed. As a result this plant has become a staple in my garden.
