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!
