Not only is this a great ingredient for homemade health and beauty products but it is a great natural pesticide to use against yellowjackets and other wasps that won't harm the environment. A friend who said they bought a product from Orchard Supply tipped me off to making my own version as the active ingredient was peppermint oil. Just mix a little with a cheap carrier oil and use a squirt gun or other sprayer to spray the insect. It acts as a neurotoxin to them for some reason. Mixing it with dish soap and water really works great as soap kills them too. Using a supersoaker and this mix I've destroyed 2 yellowjacket nests and 1 hornet nest without getting stung. I will always keep it around from now on.
I use this for controlling ants since I have cats and don't want to use anything potentially toxic. Thsi oil works great - the ants will not cross it. I also use it outside to keep the ants, slugs and snails off the food I put out for some neighborhood strays. I even have one cat that loves to roll in it, then it diffuses through the house with him... a veritable catcane!

I use the now brand peppermint in almost all of my homemade household cleaners. It really makes the chore of cleaning something special.

This oil is DIVINE! Dilute a few drop in water in a spray bottle to use for just about any cleaning purpose, Kitchen benches/ walls/ cleaning the bathroom,a few squirts in the laundry wash for freshness and stains/ floor cleaning with microfiber mop/ the dishwasher, plus can use for cooking/ air diffusers. I mixed it with salt to sprinkle around skirting boards to deter ants( a big problem for us) and in the pantry to deter insects. We will be making candy canes for Christmas this year as a home made gift. I'm highly impressed with the quality and price. Will definitely be purchasing more plus other products from this brand name.
a contemporary elixir for everything

Do not mistake this for a food - it is not. But it is a viable ingredient to use in making sprays for cleaning your house, dusting wood, refreshing clothing, and repelling unwanted visitors. It does not conflict with anything, and it does not cloy the way so many store products do. This is also the best price I have found.
