Good for killing ants and removing pet odors. I use this mixed:
1 gallon water
(2) TBL Dawn dish soap
(2) TBL peppermint oil
The spray will kill most insects right away such as ants, the palmetto bugs do not like it, and I use it on the rugs to remove pet odor to help clean the rug after the dog or cat do an oopsie.
Have used this oil for bug and mouse proofing a wood cabin in the middle of heavy woods, use around window and door frames and under house for 15 years. A wonderful product!
Purchased this as a mice deterrent for my camper. Heard mice hate the smell of peppermint. Plane to put on cotton balls & place throughout the camper. Have not tried yet, but hope it works. My order arrived quickly & am impressed by the cost per ounce compared to other sellers I researched. Hope this proves to be a non-toxic rodent deterrent that will also leave my camper with a nice aroma! If it works I will share your company with the other 75+ people in our campground. Thanks!
Great for poison ivy. apply neat to affected area as early as possible. It will either stop it dead in its tracks or at least shorten the time you have it. Great for all itchies and bug bites.
I have loved everything from Bulk Apothecary's essential oils and other products l have purchased. I won't buy from anywhere else!!!
Awesome job to all at Bulk Apothecary!!!! Thank you
Smells great! It has a very strong scent, everything was sealed tightly in packaging when it arrived and I could smell the peppermint while it was still in the envelope. Nothing had leaked, it was just that powerful! I love it.
Cooling, soothing, refreshing; just right for whatever ailes you.
Best peppermint essential oil ever!
Love this product and I am regular purchaser but was very disappointed when I wanted to order a 5lb canister and ended up ordering 2 16oz cans, putting myself on the waitlist when I believe there were more 16oz on hand. The very day my 2 16oz cans arrived, I received an email that the 5lb was now available! I know this may be an issue for customer service and I do love the product but have a hard time understanding why I could have ordered 5 16oz cans, but not the 5lb.
Perhaps this is a fill room issue, but do they pour a number of each oil sizes at a time and leave the larger canisters to be filled when new product arrives? I'll remain loyal customer, as everything I order is great, just trying to understand the availability issue.
