Tips on How to Keep Mice Away

I don’t know about you all but I hate mice! They’re squirmy and icky and I just can’t handle the thought of them being around me or my family.

Recently we had a customer call in asking if we had any suggestions for keeping mice away naturally, without using harmful chemicals. The customer at hand had mice coming in their garage frequently, and uninvited. After a bit of essential oil research, we found the best method for keeping rodents out of the house, is Peppermint Essential Oil (Supreme or Japan Oil will work). There are quite a few different ways to get this done. You can mix 3-5 drops of the Peppermint Essential Oil into a spray bottle with water, and spray the areas where the mice are traced. For instance, if you know the tracks they tend to follow, spray with the diluted water mixture. If you know the area where they are coming in (i.e. a hole in the garage, a spot in the back yard), simply soak a cotton ball with the peppermint oil and leave in the open area. The oil is a clean, minty smell, so it’s not something that will disrupt your own senses, but it is too strong for the rodents to ignore. Peppermint also keeps away spiders and ants! It’s great for your garden or just around the house.

We’ve also discovered the rodents hate the smell of strong lemon citrus essential oils! This scent also has the added benefit of lasting longer than the peppermint, making your home rodent free for quite a while! You can make the repellent the same way you would use the peppermint oil. It’s easy and all natural!
