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.

Someone had told us they used a "bug bomb" to keep spiders and bugs out of their cottage. Since I am not a fan of bringing toxins into our home, I needed to find a safer method of keeping unwanted critters out. The following recipe really works!

* 6 drops of Purification

* 2 drops Tea Tree oil

* Put into a 4 ounce glass bottle and add water

The glass bottles are about $1.00 from the Abundant Health website.

About four times a year, I spray Purification around the baseboards, in the corners of each room, and around/under each bed. We also leave empty bottles of Purification or Tea Tree oil in each corner of the kitchen counter.

Twice a year, I add a few drops of Purification and/or Tea Tree oil to the empty bottles to keep it fresh. We do not have any spider webs, nor do we see any spiders! We can sleep peacefully, knowing the critters are not living with us.
