Tips to keep the bugs away

Place planters in areas where people gather, such as a patio, pool, deck, or porch.

Place them near a gate or path where you brush against the leaves as you walk by, or in a pot where children can rub the leaves to enjoy their fragrance.

Use one planter for every 10 square feet of area.

Gently rub your hands over the foliage to release more fragrance.

Snip off a few leaves, crush in your hands, and rub on exposed areas of skin for added protection. (Test on a small patch of skin first in case of adverse reaction.)

Recommended as part of an integrated approach to combat mosquitoes.

Peppermint oil is often applied to the skin as a treatment for headaches, muscle and nerve pain, inflammation, and even for repelling mosquitoes. A good source of Vitamins A and C, mint helps with vision and immune functions. The herb is also packed with antioxidants that protect against cell damage, boost the immune system, and form collagen in the body.
