I had just attended a very informative evening on the value and stories behind some Young Living essential oils with Cole Woolly in Mackay. My mind was stimulated and I treasured my gift of some Frankincense Resin from Oman, the 70 km long drive home seemed to take forever, I was ready for sleep.
But that all changed when I stepped in the door. I had uninvited visitors who obviously thought that their ideal love shack was my humble abode on my lounge room floor! I was now fully wide awake! What should I do? They were oblivious to my presence, so entwined they were with each other. If I broke the spell they may turn on me. I must have evidence of this invasion of my privacy. My camera was handy so silently I snapped a few shots. Now that I had evidence I slipped outside to the shed to find a suitable tool with which to defend or attack, but when I came back they had separated and were headed up to my bedroom, how rude!!!..
I stayed in the shadows and waited about an hour until they eventually left via different exits. Whew !! Now I could get that sleep.
The next day, I Googled "Snake Repellant" and found Clove and Cinnamon is their dislike. So from my collection of wonderful Young Living Essential Oils, I mixed a few drops each of those 2 oils with some water in a spray bottle ready.
Evening came and I spied some beady eyes about to enter where he/she left last night through a hole in the skirting board. I rushed over and said "No you don't" and I sprayed, with my ammunition of cloves and cinnamon. Sitting quietly again, a few minutes later, it's mate poked it's head from the other exit it had taken last night, I responded the same way with my spray. You can imagine I was very alert and super sensitive to any minute sound as I did not know whether the influence of the essential oils would hinder them to make another entry attempt when I wasn't looking.
Aha a sound! looking over to my gas stove there was a 15cm or so of vertical snake poking up out of my stove cook-top looking like a periscope taking a view to see if it was all clear. I couldn't help but laugh it was such a comical site, however I quickly told it the same as the others and released my "territory spray" and of course it withdrew. I did not see them again that evening and for the next few days on dusk I sprayed those areas with the cloves and cinnamon and they haven't been back.
The Young Living Oils are so versatile, I use them for so many things and now I have another use "Snake Repellant".
By the way my "visitors" were Brown Tree-snakes and poisonous and were both about 1.5 metres long.
