Thread Name: BS: Natural Insect Repellents
Subject: RE: BS: Natural Insect Repellents
To actually address the natural insect repellent question, there are many plants which have insect repellent properties. The problem is that the repellent chemicals are bound up inside the leaf structures. To get the repellent chemicals out, you usually have to pulverize the leaves. Simply growing the plants won't often work.
