Keep insects away with these plants

Do you have those annoying creepy crawly critters in your house that make you upset of their existence? If you don’t already have a garden at home, are you planning on starting one? Here are some plants that you can add to your garden that can keep away insects.

Rosemary

Rosemary can be used to repel fleas and ticks (source). At the same time, it can be used for other purposes such as culinary dishes and health benefits. It improves digestion, enhances memory and concentration, neurological protection, and prevents brain aging.

Peppermint

Peppermint can be used to repel spiders, mosquitoes and ants (source). This plant needs plenty care in order to grow but once it is fully grown the benefits will be worth it. It comes with benefits other than keeping away insects such as improving digestion, colds and flu, blood pressure and type II diabetes.

The tea also comes with medicinal benefits such as relieving stress, improving the quality of sleep, treating digestive issues, can be used as a remedy for colds and fevers, can accelerate wounds and burns and it is also good for weight loss.
