It doesn't, really, unless you put it directly on your skin. What you do rub the crushed leaves on will have a barrier to prevent them from landing on or near the spot. It isn't clear how far this range is.

I would crush some of the leaves, and soak them in water, and use that to spray the area, and yourselves. This would be most effective.
