  1. Mix essential oils and water in a medium spray bottle.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Spray baseboards, porches, and anywhere you see ants with the solution.
  4. Repeat if necessary.


Remember to always shake the bottle before use. Essential oils will separate between uses.

I always use a dark colored spray bottle to prevent the oils from oxidizing, but your oils will stay fine if you store your spray bottle in a dark, cool place in between uses.

Do not use this spray on the skin because the oils are very strong and could cause burning or tingling.
