Over the last three or four months, unfortunately, I’ve noticed a few ants scurrying around the floor in our kitchen area. (We try to be clean people, but sometimes there’s only so much you can do when you have an 18-month old kid.)
Obviously, I wasn’t particularly pleased about this, but wanted to do my best to get rid of the ants without having to use any harsh chemicals, particularly because of my son. So, after doing a bunch of internet research, I came across a pretty good solution: peppermint oil.
I had purchased some a while back when I was giving aromatherapy a shot, so, thankfully, I already had some on hand. After giving it a whirl (see the video below), I have to say, the ants have pretty much disappeared, hopefully for good!
Do any of you use essential oils? If so, what for? Leave a comment below and share your thoughts with the community.
