Nobody enjoys bugs in their home. I remember growing up in Florida and when it rained the creepy crawlies would come running in. I love essential oils (I DO NOT EAT OR DRINK THEM! Also, I do not represent DoTerra or Young Living – although my friend sells Young Living so I have this oil pictured.) I actually get most of my Essential Oils from a Small Business in Baltimore called PureSpiritPotions, you can find them on Etsy!
Anyways, a few years ago I learned that bugs do not like peppermint! Natural repellants are awesome. The key is to once a month or more if necessary, place drops of peppermint oil on window sills and in the door jams. This keeps the bugs away! I like to place it right in the crevices where they like to enter the house. If you have a green thumb, growing fresh mint or peppermint also works out well!
This is one of my favorite life hacks because it is so easy and it really works. Also, because most bug repellants are made with poisons which you certainly don’t want near your pets or babies.
Here’s to a healthy and happy you! xo
