Lavender is a very durable plant that does not need a lot of love to thrive. In fact, it only needs full sun and well-drained soil to produce that amazing scent that we all love. Did you know that the relaxing scent that we love is the same scent that repels mosquitoes? In fact, the oils are even said to reduce the mosquito?s ability to smell, which will keep them off of your skin. In addition, if the plant?s aroma is sufficient, then rub the leaves on your skin.

4. Marigolds

Marigolds are beautiful orange annual flowers that are very popular summer plants because they thrive in full sun and humid conditions. In fact, you can even water these plants during the hottest time of the day without damaging them.

?These little plants contain Pyrethrum, which is an ingredient that is used to deter mosquitoes. It is not as powerful as some of the other options, but if you place the plant near a window, they will fly in the other direction.
