I had mice invade my car and no one (except professional exterminators) could offer a solution, and the main dealers were useless! After spending £40+ on traps and poisons they were still there, and we had only caught 2. I read that Peppermint oil deters mice so I bought some! It was amazing - all gone and the car smells beautiful! You just dot cottonwool pads dosed with the oil around the car. I keep this up now as it's so easy and have just purchased my 2nd bottle!
It smells of peppermint, but not the peppermint I expect from Mentha Piperita, it lacks sweetness and comes across as chemically (think toilet cleaner) and bitter.
I bought it to use as a aromatherapy oil, but because of its not entirely pleasant smell, I'm only using it on cottonwool balls to deter spiders in a particularly spider prone area. It seems to work for this purpose, but I wouldn't want to put it in a diffuser etc.
Perhaps it's just a bad batch but I won't be buying again.
After reading reviews on peppermint oil, I decided to but as part of my hair regime. I love the smell and the tingly feeling that comes with it.
My gf has mouse problems and I remember reading reviews that it can be used as a rodent repellant. So u bought a bottle for her. After putting some on a cottonwool, she text me saying babes from I used it the mouse turn idiot. It doesn't no where to run. Lol. I guess Stuart (he nickname she gave it) won't be back fort a while 🐭
Not sure if going to work to help keep mice away but worth a try. Sprinkled some on cottonwool balls to help to try deter the little pests from coming into wardrobe. Nice press peppermint smell, one husband says smells like toothpaste. At least when the mice have had a go at something with this on their breath should be nice and fresh. Was thinking a lot less dangerous than using mice repellent liquids with having animals about and such. Also use a couple of drops in kitchen bin to keep it smelling fresh instead of that horrid kitchen bin smell that can happen no matter how many times you wash it out. Came as described and delivered within timescale too would buy this again as quite cheap compared to some shops.
After having a panic attack discovering a mouse in my kitchen cupboard I bought this, it arrived very quickly, the smell is very strong for the price! Which was quite a surprise, and yes after leaving some drops on some cottonwool balls there has been no sign of any mice whatsoever, I'm thrilled! I'm now looking at ordering more essential oils from this company due to excellent service and value for money
