Safe, Non-Toxic Anti-Spider Spray

Posted on

With a little one in the house, finding a way to control insects {spiders especially!} without using toxic sprays is even more important to me than before.  After looking around & finding lots of different recipes, I concocted this little batch & gave it a try.  Not only has it drastically helped with spiders & other bugs, it smells great!  I just spray it along our doors & windows, anywhere those little guys have a tendency to sneak in through.

Here’s how you put it together:

In a spray bottle {I bought a 5-pack of basic spray bottles from Sam’s a while back that work great!}, simply add together:

1 1/2 c. water

1 T dish soap {any kind will do, Biokleen just happens to be the kind we have right now}

7 drops Peppermint essential oil

7 drops Lavender essential oil

7 drops Grapefruit essential oil

Shake a bit & start spraying!  I’ve noticed a huge difference on our back patio where I used to have to knock down webs continuously!

I used all Young Living Essential Oils.  If you’d like more info on Young Living, click here, or more info on becoming a member & ordering at wholesale prices, click here.
