So I just found this out this weekend. But it's such a good piece of information I had to share it.
Basil. The herb that adds delicious tang to any meal your cooking. Is also a fantastic mozzie repellent. So next time you're sitting outside on your patio, dreaming of a mozzie free environment, whip out some fresh basil. The citric tang that it emits is enough to keep all the mozzies away.
WHY DON'T MORE PEOPLE KNOW THIS!?!??!
So, for me, clumps of fresh basil hanging around the house sound just perfect.
