Keep Spiders Out Of Your Home With Peppermint Oil

| November 13, 2012 | 0 Comments


If you were to ask anyone that knows me what it is that I am truly afraid of, the answer you would receive is spiders. I cannot stand spiders, not even a little bit. If I see a spider anywhere in my house the next thing you will see is a phonebook is going flying across the room and hopefully landing on the spider or flattening it against a wall.

By thanks to the advice of a friend and their recommendation of peppermint oil I have not seen a single solitary spider in ages.

You see spiders seem to be intolerant of the peppermint scent and if one smells or comes in contact with even the slightest hint of peppermint they flee in the opposite direction. Away from me and my house, thank goodness.

If you want to get rid of the spiders in your home too follow these simple steps. First, go out and get yourself some peppermint oil and a spray bottle. When you get home fill up you spray bottle with some water and about 15-20 drop of the peppermint oil (give or take depending on the size of your spray bottle). The goal is to ensure that the mixture has a sufficient enough scent of peppermint. Now go through your house and simply spray all of the cracks, gaps, and little corners where these little buggers like to hide and sneak in and out of.

If you are looking for something a little more pungent and power instead of diluting the water simple take some cotton balls and apply the peppermint oil directly to the ball and place the cotton ball directly into the crack and gaps. That will really send spider in a completely different direction. However, not everyone enjoys having cotton balls randomly planted throughout their homes. Whichever method you choose to use, in my experience has worked equally and my result have been truly satisfying. I am now spider free.

If you do not know where to get some good peppermint oil simply head over to Amazon and pick up some of Plant Therapy’s peppermint oil from their essential oil collection.
