Mosquito repellent

Indian Borage (bangun-bangun) + Mint = mosquito repellent.

Not sure if this is true or not but I will be rooting this two plants in water. I know Indian Borage (Plectranthus barbatus) is better to be planted straight to ground (as adviced by many in the Malaysian Gardeners Facebook group) but I just like to see it in water for a while.

According to one blog, the Indian Borage is an effective cure for cough and even recommended by her doctor friend.
