We know them. We don’t like them. If they went extinct tomorrow, the world would gather and rejoice. I’m writing about the human’s common enemy and pest: the mosquito. Summer is here and all of sudden, as if the heat and rain wasn’t bad enough, these pests come in swarms ready to attack.

It feels like they are difficult to repel, given that pesticides are harmful to our air quality and doesn’t nearly repel or kill the mosquitoes than it does harm us.

There’s no need to sacrifice your health and indoor/outdoor air quality for the sake of these pests. Lucky for us, we have nature’s natural pest repellents.

Yes, our air purifying plants does all the work for us. Not only do they provide and improve our air quality, they also do all the dirty work of repelling these pests for us!

 

Basil

Great for soups, salads, fragrance, and your air! They are air purifying plants that will keep those mosquitoes away for sure! You can purchase an already potted one and just make sure to water it often.

Mint

Mint is another wonderful aromatic herb that does the same as basil and are easy to grow. For mint, you just have to rub the mint on your skin.

Lavender

Most people are familiar with this herb and understand the calming properties it has on us. It’s also a great air purifier and only needs plenty of sunlight.

Chrysanthemum

They’re gorgeous flowers that blooms its petals so wide and clustered. These pretty air purifiers also reduces benzene and formaldehyde, odorless chemicals that causes cancer. Humans come in contact with it in everyday life. They are found generally in consumer products such as detergents, gasoline, secondhand cigarette smoke, etc...

Aloe Vera

Personally, I feel like everyone should own at least a small potted one in their indoor space. Their medicinal properties alone and their air purifying abilities are motivators to keep this plant. They breathe in the carbon and release clean oxygen to your space.

Eucalyptus

They’re not just for your essential oils. They are wonderful air purifiers and repel mosquitoes effectively.

 

These air purifying plants are guaranteed to make sure that not only is your quality the best, it guarantees that mosquitoes and other pests will be repelled, ensuring that you will have a fun, mosquito free summer!

This is the first pant I got and I am very satisfied! The plant is as beautiful as it is on the pictures. The colors of the leaves are fantastic and the plant is very easy to take care of. I followed the care tips on their blog and I contacted them on Instagram, and I have to say that the customer service is on point. They were very helpful and answered all my concerns quickly. Thank you so much Essencia Air, I love it!
