Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I just learned a few weeks ago that to keep mice and rodents out of an area you get Peppermint oil and place a few drops on cotton balls and place them around. Rodents hate the smell and remember to simply avoid the area.

My car is always parked outdoors and I have had a terrific ongoing battle with rats nesting under the hood and chewing on wiring as well as the solids and fluids that they leave behind. I used the oil and have not seen a sign of rats now in several weeks. The same for mice nesting under the washing machine on the back porch. A nasty health risk avoided with a few drops of Peppermint oil.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: mice, pest.
