This Natural Spider Repellent recipe happened out of pure desperation.A few years ago after we had an ongoing amount of rain my little boy was bitten by a spider.
It was crazy we took him to the doctor had hi medicated and all the creams were prescribed but then my husband got bitten by a spider on his thigh. We were being INVADED!!!!! But wait then my little boy got another bite and then another bite.
By that time I had bought and used every Insect repellent (you’ve seen the back of those scary bottles its poison after poison we spraying into our homes eeeeeekkkk!)the stores had to offer.Nothing was helping,we even thought that perhaps my son was getting attacked by the spiders at school.I had to find a solution and quick.
I came across this oddly easy Spider Repellent online. It was Natural and it was easy to make.Could this be the solution?
I gave it a try and needless to say we’ve never had a spider visit since (well until..read below).When the rains come I get out my trusty bottle of Spider Repellent and spray along the window sills, the sliding doors , around the entrance door frames and all the dark nook and crannies in our home.
This December I had run out of oil and lo and behold my husband got a Spider Bite on his arm he had to have treated by the doctor it was that bad.I rushed out the same day and stocked up.
By now you asking ok ok you’ve told us how great it is but what is it?How do you make it?
YOu will need:
- Peppermint Oil
- Spray Bottle (By now you have seen I like to buy those small bottles from the Travel aisle at Dischem)
- Pour Water into spray bottle
- Add 8-10 drops of Peppermint Oil
- Close Bottle and shake
- Use as and when needed
My youngest is super paranoid about getting a Spider Bite, so before bed he sprays himself with the peppermint spray along with his duvet , as his bed is right against the wall where the window is.To date he has been bite free.
When my son was in the 2nd Grade their classroom was also being invaded by spiders, after the rains we had had. I made a bottle for the classroom , Im happy and relieved to say not a single child fell victim to spider bites.
Let me know if you try it out and if you as happy as I am using this Natural Spider Repellent.
