I was discussing the idea of some kind of working to repel insects on another board and someone posted a spell they said had worked in the past for them. I want to give it a spin and see how it goes, if only to keep the mosquitos out of my room, but it calls for, to quote:
I'm doing some googling to try dig up suggestions, but does anyone have any ideas which herbs would be good for this effect in Australia? And, more to the point, where would such herbs be obtained? Would I have to buy the actual plants and harvest them myself, or could I obtain them pre-harvested somewhere?This working calls upon the help of plants that have biological properties for repelling insects. Strong smelling plants such as Lemon grass, Lavender, Rosemary, Peppermint etc all make fairly good repellents. The best thing to do is look for plants like these in the area you want to repel insects from, as those plants will have the ability to repel the local insects.
