Citronella

 

  • Despite being known as the mosquito plant, multiple studies have shown that its lemon scented leaves do not actually help repel mosquitoes.  Citronella is simply just a variety of scented  geraniums that naturally give off that citrus smell. Regardless of peoples belief in their mosquito repelling capabilities, citronella is still a great sun loving herb, that smells amazing and their leaves can be used to make tea.
