No matter how up-to-date we are with our pest control, spiders still make an unwelcome appearance. Especially around my clothes line. I’ve made up a DIY natural spider repellent to keep them away, and repeat every month or so.
Spiders really don’t like mint, the strong smell sends them scurrying the other direction, which is ideal to get rid of them naturally! Simply fill a spray bottle with water and add in 15 drops of each:
PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL – invigorating to the senses promoting an uplifted cheery feeling which spiders detest!
LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL – Sharp, clean refreshing aroma which deters creepy crawlies from coming back.Print
