Can I just say that I absolutely hate spiders? Really, they scare me half to death and keeping them out of my home is critical. If you feel the same way or if you just really don’t like those little critters hanging around, there are a few effective and all-natural ways to keep them away.
First, peppermint is very effective. Spiders simply hate peppermint so placing just a few drops of peppering essential oils into a spray bottle, adding a little liquid dish soap and filling with water gives you an excellent remedy for ridding your home of spiders. Spray this mixture around your windows and doors and just anywhere that you think they may be crawling around.
You can also use vinegar and coconut oil. Mix the two together into a spray bottle and spray around doors and windows, in the shower and under beds.
Finally, spiders also tend to dislike citrus oils. Lemons, limes and oranges are great essential oils to spray around if you want a fresh clean smell and a home free from spiders.
