|the Lemongrass in front of our home|
One interesting fact is this plant could help us shoo away mosquitoes in our house. At this point in time that dengue is becoming a big problem in our country, I think we need all those things we need to fight these mosquitoes from getting anywhere near us.
True. These mosquitoes could be anywhere in the market, at your children's school grounds, at the back of your office, or in the corridors of the church.
But still, we need all things, any thing that could help us prevent these flies from coming near us.
Lemongrass is said to be a natural mosquito repellant. At least, we won't need a handful of Off! Lotion on our body when we are within the four corners of our home. According to the Filipino website, philippineherbalmedicine.org, all you have to do is place crushed lemongrass leaves in places around your home; on window sills and near entrances. It's a plus if you already have this grass anywhere near your house or in your backyard.
We have this grass in front of our house. It's not really very hard to reproduce this plant. We bought a small plant from the Anilag Fesitval last March and we have been able to plant this across our yard and right now, we are already growing a good number in front. All you have to do is get a portion with its roots and let it grow by itself. As my dad says, it's not going to be very hard because, since it belongs to the grass family, it won't be hard to maintain.
