If I put this essential oil in my diffuser, my whole room smells minty and fresh 🙂 I also love using it to prevent bug bites by putting it on my skin in the evenings or at night.

with it getting cold outside i was having a spider problem with about 4 to 5 spiders a week in my house. I mixed 15 drops of oil with 2oz water and sprayed all around my windows and doors, in the basement bathroom and haven’t had any spiders that I’ve seen in my house after.
