repelling ants

Ants avoid a path scented with Peppermint!

Spraying peppermint oil in your home not only keeps the ants at bay and smells bright and fresh, and is said that many other insects avoid the oil too!!! e.g. spiders, moths, fleas, caterpillars, lice, flies, beatles & aphids… a must-have mix to keep in a bottle amongst all of your natural house cleaning products.

Non-toxic Ant repellant Instructions

You will need:

  • A clean empty spray bottle
  • Water
  • First Light Organics Peppermint Essential oil

Fill a spray bottle with water, and 10 to 15 drops of certified organic peppermint oil.

Spray this mixture strategically around your house – in places like the kitchen benches near food, and where you can see the ant trails are entering the house.  Sprinkle a few drops of full-strength peppermint oil around trash cans and corners of your bathroom or pantry.

Note: always do a quick test on your finishes or paint jobs to make sure the full strength oil does not cause any damage.
