Prevent Spiders-Naturally!

naturalspray I love being outside in the summer, but one thing that freaks me out during summertime are spiders; eek! When I see a spider in my house, I totally transform from an independent momma into a squealing little girl. Luckily, I found a natural way to reduce the number of spiders that are hanging around, using peppermint! Spiders hate peppermint, so I made a spray using peppermint oil to keep them at bay. Even better, your house will smell minty fresh & it’s all natural, so no need to worry about chemicals.

What you’ll need:

How to make:

  • Fill the spray bottle with water.
  • Add several drops of peppermint oil (I add around 15-20 drops…enough to make it smell pepperminty) & shake
  • Spray around doorways, perimeters of your rooms (anywhere spiders come in)
  • Repeat as needed (after mopping etc)

Try this too:

You can also put a few drops of peppermint oil on cotton balls & put them in the corners, windows etc.

Now, the spiders can serve their purpose…OUTSIDE vs in your house :)

This is the peppermint oil that I use which is available for just $7 on Amazon (with shipping!) but you could use DoTerra, YoungLiving and other brands as well.
