We’re well into the summer months, which means that it’s very common to see spiders and other insects around your house. Seeing spiders, of course, results in the ultimate cringe factor, causing even some of the bravest men to run and hide!

Don’t walk around in fear until winter comes, because there are natural and effective remedies that you can use to keep spiders at bay. For one, you can use essential oils. Spiders simply don’t like certain scents and if you make a spray mixture and then spray it in all the places that spiders creep in from, voila, you can say good-bye to these 8 legged creatures!

Chemical pesticides and insecticides are not a healthy option to be spraying around your home, so opt for this awesome essential oil mixture instead (shown in the article below). Plus, with scents like peppermint, lavender and citrus, you’ll be ensuring that every room in your house smells amazing. Win-win!
