Will peppermint oil help kill fleas

One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs, peppermint essential oil has a fresh aroma that is energizing to give you a renewed feeling of vigor.

It is sometimes thought of as an old wives tale, but is it true? Does peppermint oil repel spiders? Save yourself having to pay for bug and pest control services by finding a solution yourself.  Peppermint oil for spiders  is a safe, natural and effective way to kill spiders compared to using chemical pest control spray that can be toxic as well as dangerous.

This essential mint oil is the most cost effective way of getting rid of spiders in a short duration of time because spiders can’t tolerate it.. After smelling the oil, the spiders will run away in the opposite direction after detecting the presence of it. Hence it is the most effective way to repel spiders when you apply this oil at the entrances of your apartment. You can also use undiluted oil by applying it to crevices, cracks and other hiding places for spiders. It is a natural way of eliminating spiders from every corner of your home and using a natural deterrent as it prevents the risk of exposing your family to potentially harmful chemicals.

In my years of green living, I've found the simplest, easiest way to help others "go green" is through introducing them to the many uses of essential oils . Want to learn more about how I do that?

While the aroma of peppermint essential oil ( Mentha piperita ) may be synonymous in some minds with the candy, it's a lot more than flavoring. The essential oil of peppermint has been used for centuries for digestive problems, sinus and respiration and more. The oil is created by steam distilling the leaves, stems and flower buds, and the aroma of a quality brand can be very sweet, and obviously minty, in nature.

It's most often used to support the digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems, as well as muscular and joint health. It's very cooling to the skin, which may be too tingling for sensitive skin or children. And whatever you do, don't get it near your eyes. Not fun. (I have many times made the mistake of touching my face too soon after touching peppermint oil. Some of us are slow learners.)

What comes to your mind when you hear the word, peppermint ? For me, up until this past year, my first thoughts would have been candy cane and chewing gum . I had no idea that peppermint was derived from a leaf in nature, and this was because I never took the time to question its origins.

I didn’t learn to question my food or my beauty or  medicinal products. I always trusted the ‘system’ I was raised in… Now I am learning to think for myself and to ask the right questions. So back to the peppermint question… What word first comes to your mind when you  hear that word?
