- purple horsemint
- bergamot
- lemon mint

In addition to the garden, we see this flower along the road of countrysides. Its native to:

Could Lemon bee balm flowers repel mosquitoes?

Yes

I just know this flower could fight off insect recently.

Why its could repulse mosquitoes?


 Fig 03- The flowers could repel insects

Because the flower contains citronellal, the compound produce flavor and aroma to make insects detest, then go away.

Lemon bee balm flowers could be extracted to make oil. The oil is used as an ingredient in:

- perfumes
- cosmetic
- soap
- insect repellents.

Citronellal oil might be applied to our skin to repel insect, and safe to many or most people.

However, never inhale the Citronellal fragrance, because may dangerous to our lung (webMD, 2020).

Do you know the lemon bee balm flower and its benefit?

  4. C'est une jolie fleur. J'ai un géranium citron, du thym citron, du basilic citron. Mais je ne sais pas si ils éloignent bien les moustiques.
    Bonne journée

  5. We have both lemon balm and mosquitoes in our backyard, so perhaps it is only effective right around the area of the plant.
