Just as another reviewer,I purchased this to ward off spiders,after reading an item on Yahoo.I hate 'em,and if they stayed where they're meant to be,am quite content to leave them well alone,but in the house---yuck!Hence my order.Mix with water,15-20 drops of this,a spraybottle,and...well,we shall see.Or hopefully,not see---spiders.They say we eat so many spiders every year,they crawl into our mouths while we sleep...so unless you have a taste for raw arachnids,buy this product!
Fabulous mixed with water and a drop of dish soap liquid as a spider, fly and bug in general deterrent. I added 5ml to a large spraybottle of tap water and drop of soap and shake, then sprayed around window and door frames daily in summer to keep flies out and weekly in winter for any bugs I have not had a single bug of any kind be it the flying or crawling kind in a whole year in my room. Best bug deterrent without being harmful or chemical that I have ever used.
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.
the reason i brought this was to get rid of spiders, i was uncertain about would peppermint actually work, and i am very glad to be wrong.
Best thing to keep spiders away! Regularly burn this in an oil burner to keep my home creature free. Mix in a spraybottle with water and spray around windows in the summer to keep spiders etc out. Works a treat!
Purchased this for the first time as a last resort in all honesty to keep pesky spiders out of my house! Arrived promptly, and just a few drops with water was required in a spraybottle and can honestly say, not only does my house smell minty fresh but not one eight legged creature seen (so far)! Great product.
Like many of the other people who purchased this item, I too am stupidly afraid of Spiders.
After looking up how to get rid of them it seemed Peppermint Essential Oil was the best method, so I bought this to try it.
Into a cheap spraybottle I put about 10-15 drops of the Peppermint Essential Oil, a small blob of dish soap and warm water, shook it up and sprayed it along my windows.
We tend to get 3-4 spiders in here a week, sometimes getting those insanely HUGE massive black spiders that I'd describe as the british equivalent of tarantulas, so far after about 2 weeks of using this (spraying it on the windows every few days to refresh the scent) it's been a complete success! Not one spider has been spotted! (We've left the windows open most nights which is normally how they make their way in, very surprised not one has come through yet)
The Peppermint Oil is also a wonderful way to make the room smell clean and fresh, very strong scent that I adore.
If you hate spiders and wish to repel them or like the smell of Peppermint I'd highly recommend buying this!
