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 have always used Purification for the mosquitoes but decided to experiment with pepermint. Was really interested in finding that if one puts this on the skin then does it act as a repellant. Then one day, after looking at my veggies and what insects had done decided to create a spray with pepermint and see what happens. Well, amazingly enough the insects just fell off and that was the end of them.

Seems that pepermint with the water as a spray is pretty 'deadly' for insects, spiders etc. I have always used Thieves spray but as a test this was so interesting and incredibly quick. Sure it would be good for the life force of the veggies/herbs as well!
