Anti-Creepy-Crawly Spray

If you’re like me at all, you can abide with ickies living outside, doing their thing, which is a good thing (since they eat bugs!). But I don’t want them inside the house. Stay out! Does this spray work? Well, you just have to see for yourself. And if it does, you will find yourself using it often in late summer/early fall when the cold nights start coming on.

Anti-Creepy-Crawly Spray

Ingredients:

Directions:

Add the oil to the spray bottle, then top with the water. Put in the sprayer top, and seal well. Shake gently before misting. Mist around doors and windows, but don’t saturate. Works both indoors and outdoors. Reapply as needed.

Notes:

My three choices in this spray were Simply EarthdōTERRA and Aura Cacia:

Using what I had on hand, I performed a quick paper test to see how they compared.

They both compared well, and left no stains after 30 minutes.

I would recommend either oil. As with my previous tests, I have found these two brands to perform well. Aura Cacia is found easily in many stores (including natural food stores and Super Supplements, and as well Amazon), where as dōTERRA is a specialty item. However, when it comes to the two brands, dōTERRA has the better aroma. It is considerably more vibrant.
