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 live in a walk-out basement apartment with a couple of slider glass doors. I noticed spiders would appear in the apartment every time I had the doors open (even though the screen doors were kept closed).

I've been spreading a mixture of water and Purification oil around the inside of the screen door frame and I have gotten NO spiders since. I found the protection even persists though light rain storms, but should be re-applied after heavier rain.

Mixing it up in a spray bottle would be handier and that's what I'll try next. But in the meantime, I simply put about 6 ounces of water in a cup (I use a tea mug), then add about 4-6 drops of Young Living Purification essential oil. I pour the water/oil on the door sill. Next, I dip a paper towel into the mixture and use the soaked towel to spread the mixture around the remaining 3 sides of the screen door frame.

It's so nice to have fresh air without having to deal with spiders! This is keeping all kinds of spiders out - large and small, and all sorts of scary-looking species that I don't know the name of. :-)
