Natural Spider Repellent Recipe

Natural Spider Repellent Recipe

I DON’T LIKE SPIDERS!  I use this ‘crazy good’ natural spider repellent that I make at home to notify spiders that they are not welcome inside!  It works!!!

Gabe finds  spiders intriguing!
Yes, he was watching little creepy crawlers while I gardened and YES, I added this picture because there was absolutely NO WAY I could post this with a picture of a spider and nothing else!!!
Phobia?  Ya think????

I had a little encounter yesterday with Mr. Spider while I was working IN MY OFFICE so I whipped out my Magic Spider Spray – my favorite Spider weapon – and went to work!

It is easy and inexpensive to make AND it smells heavenly to me though Mr. Spider doesn’t think so.  Ready to make your own?

  1. Add 10 – 15 drops of peppermint essential oil to a spray bottle containing 8 – 12 ounces of water.  Mix well.
  2. Spray around openings to your home (doors, windows, cracks, etc.).

That’s all there is to it!!!  Now, if you see some of the creepy crawlers have braved the scent and continued to make their way into your home you can always add a couple more drops of your essential oil to the mixture to make it stronger.  Also, if you aren’t crazy about the smell of peppermint you can try another strong smelling essential oil like lavender, mint, orange – you get the picture. Crazy Good Creations finds really good prices on essential oils so send an email (‘CONTACT’ button) if you are in the market for some!

With our weather pattern changes I am thinking I probably need to spray at least once per week in the winter (if you want to call this winter and NO, I am NOT complaining!).  I always spray twice per week in the warmer months because I don’t like spiders (oh, I said that already?) and DO NOT want them in my home (I really don’t!) AND that peppermint smell just makes me happy (ahh…that’s better – let’s end this on a happy note)! 😉
