Catnip is said to be 10 times more effective than DEET in repelling mosquitoes. Citronella, or West Indian lemongrass, is a tall plant and the source for citronella oil. Cascading Geranium, another bug repelling plant, will cascade over its pot and add a delicate floral scent to your potagerie.
YES! For someone allergic to citronella candles and coils this would be ideal. There is citronella in the pot but as long as I don't run my hands and body all through it or light it on fire, I should be fine :) Repel mosquitos The natural way!
