This is what you need to make a natural spider repelling spray for the home:
- 2 cups distilled water
- 15 drops Lemon Essential Oil
- 5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- 1 teaspoon dish detergent
- (optional) 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
Mix water, lemon, peppermint and dish detergent in a spray bottle.
Shake well and spray mixture around window sills, crevices and corners were spiders normally reside.
Spray weekly in these areas to repel spiders from the home.
There are several other essential oil mixes that you can use that spiders detest, such as eucalyptus, lavender, tea tree and and citronella.
Feel free to experiment with different mixtures, however be sure to speak with a professional on the proper dilutions and applications if you have certain sensitivities, allergies and small pets or children at home.
