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 was dealing with an ant invasion around my trash can and around my dog's food bowl.

After reading several recipes, I decided to use a teaspoon of sea salt to absorb 3 drops each of Peppermint, Lemon, Orange, and Grapefruit essential oils. Then I combined the oil and salt mixture with water to fill an 8-to 10-ounce metal spray bottle.

Note: It is important to remember that citrus oils must be stored in metal or glass bottles, not plastic.

I sprayed the trash can and the floor around my dog's bowls with the mixture 3 to 4 times in one day. I have not seen another ant since!

I was relieved that I did not have to worry about my dog coming in contact with essential oils, as they are nontoxic. And of course I was excited that the oils solved my problem too. I love therapeutic-grade essential oils!
