I use the petals of the flower to make a drink, so I do not want to use a commercial insecticide.

Keeping spiders away, usually, consists of physically removing their webs, food source, and hiding spots. Keep in mind, removing spiders will mean that you will need to have a backup source of insect control ready to take over the job that the spiders are doing.
