Things are warming up so that means it’s that time of year when ants find their way into our homes.  Peppermint Jim believes that treating ants should be done in a less toxic, natural way using our very own Peppermint Essential Oil. (Many store bought varieties are not only toxic, but they are dangerous to have around children and pets)!  Here’s our tried and true bug repellent spray recipe you can use against mice, ants, spiders and more:

1 tbs of biodegradable, liquid soap to which you add 50 drops of Peppermint Jim’s peppermint oil. Pour mixture into a 32 oz spray bottle. Fill with filtered water and shake well before each use. Spray your counter tops, floor boards, corners, window sills, and other areas you may suspect unwanted roommates!
