Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I just learned a few weeks ago that, to keep mice and rodents out of an area, apply a few drops of Peppermint oil 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 an ongoing battle with rats nesting under the hood, chewing on wires, and the excrement that they leave behind.

Since using Peppermint oil I have not seen a sign of a rat 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. Amazing!
