The scent of Horsemint is like citronella. Horsemint can be found wild throughout the Eastern United States. It can be found from Mexico to Texas all the way to Minnesota and Vermont. It thrives in sandy soils and can be found in USDA Zones 5-10. Native Americans used it as a treatment for colds and flu. The essential oils that are high in thymol create the natural fungicide or retardant.


The wonderful herb we use to season our food is also a great, natural mosquito repellent. The herb has been utilized for centuries to repel mosquitoes. Rosemary is an Mediterranean native, which means it is a fan of hot, dry climates and soil that is well-drained. It is resilient in USDA zones 8-10 and is best cultivated as a pot plant in warmer climates. If you happen to live in a region where rosemary doesn't cultivate, buy the best essential rosemary oil of high-quality; mix 4 drops with one cup of olive oil. Keep it in a cool, dry place.
