Attractive small bush with pungent, grey-green leaves. The whole plant deters insects and can therefore be used as general insect repellant.
Should be cut back in winter and tolerates most climates.
• The leaves make one of the best natural fish moth and mosquito repellant.
• Hang bunches of leaves in a chicken coop to deter fleas, lice, and flies.
• Ants: Chopped and sprinkled around holes, or a strong infusion poured into holes.
