I read somewhere that peppermint oil is supposed to keep spiders away and after dotting it around the edge of my house I can say I haven’t seen a spider since, needs doing every couple of weeks but the added bonus is that it keeps the house smelling fresh too!
This oil is fabulous for deterring spiders. I used to get massive ones in my flat every year around September/ October, often several a day. Last autumn I got rid off a couple of massive ones in the house entrance and a couple more in the flat after a thorough hoovering session. Since then I have been using the peppermint oil, mixing a few drops with some water and spraying any places where I thought spiders may enter the flat or like to hide with this mixture (doorways, gaps under skirting boards etc). I do this about once or twice a week. It is now 6 months on and I have seen no more than 2 little spiders since then. I'd definitely buy this again.
I hate spiders, they're a pest They are definitely an unwanted guest
In June and September they tend to invade So, this essential oil, I liberally sprayed Around external doors, windows, air vents Then inside the house I dotted with scents Of this peppermint oil - not an unpleasant smell Will it work? Only time will tell
I still have the occasional 'visitor' But hopefully this does deter them more when I 'topped it up' two did appear So they definitely don't like the scent to be near
I hope that this review helps you And maybe makes you chuckle too!
first time i'v ordered from this company and i'm hooked! service was goo, fast and items were all packed very well and boxed professionally. i was like a kid at xmas opening this package! i was looking for an alternative to getting bugs out of the house as 8 year old daughter freaks out. also we had a stray cat hanging around which was infested with fleas and it passed it on to my cat. we had tried every product including from drop, sprays, sprinkling stuff and natural table salt but nothing was helping to get rid of them. i tried burning the peppermint oil on oil burner and amazingly the fleas, bugs and anything else lurking around the house had cleared almost overnight. i went abit mad and think i overdid it by watching some you-tube video's on how to make room and linen spray with the oils i had bought from this company. i managed to make a simple spray to mist around the rooms and it helped me on days i was feeling down. my son has autism but he loves mint and this smell first got to him on the first day as i think i added too much as it is strong and he wasn't even expecting it a smell when he got home which as risky for a child with asd, as it is very strong, but later he loved it and it was like a boost for him too. i sprayed abit on his jacket so it might help on way to school. so far so good. i read its not suitable for cats otherwise would have soaked the cat in the bath with it! would really recommend it an i only bought the 10ml sizes to try and test them and then order a larger bottle of the ones i like. i will be ordering a larger bottle of peppermint.
Used this in my oil burner, lovely fresh peppermint smell filled the house. Felt like Christmas!! Also added drops to water and sprayed around the home to keep spiders at bay (seems to be working). Great product.
Lovely strong pepperminty smell. House spiders don't like it, so they tend to stay away from my place when I spray it around (I spray around windows and put several drops on a doormat daily in late August-beginning of Sept.). It actually makes house spiders go up the walls if they are inside when I start spraying. I don't think it worked as well with other kinds of spiders though but I only had a problem with house spiders as they are too big for me to share my room with.
