Mint - Pennyroyal
Pennyroyal is a most useful member of the mint family.
Traditionally used to repel fleas, mice and other pests, it is also a main ingredient in herbal insect repellents. And it's so easy to grow!
A great feature about this plant is its amazing ability to repel mosquitoes, I use it all the time when gardening. All you have to do is pinch some of the plant off, gently crush in hand and then rub on clothing or skin.
This upright, creeping perennial reaches 15cm tall and spreads indefinitely. Narrow stems are lined with 1½-inch oval leaves and topped with whorls of lilac flowers.
This herb is an excellent ground cover, as it spreads rapidly and will protect your soil from the harsh sun.
