Butterflies are beautiful to look at, and gazing at them can even offer stress-relief. But how do you get them to come into your garden? Just add a drop or two of wild orange or lavender into water cups, and place several of them throughout your garden.
(Or better yet, plant some of these flowers to keep the butterflies coming back year after year!)
GET RID OF SLUGS.
Slugs are the bane of existence for gardeners.
If your garden is suffering because of them, try using a diluted mix of either peppermint or cedarwood essential oil and water, about 5 drops of oil to one cup of water to start.
Spray a ring around any of your plants or produce that are affected by the slugs.
KEEP CREEPY-CRAWLIES OUT OF YOUR HOUSE
Antes, mice, and other vermin hate the smell of peppermint.
If they detect it, they’ll immediately turn around and leave.
You can repel them by soaking cotton balls in peppermint essential oil and placing them strategically around your greenhouse or garden.
Another way to do it is to add 10 to 15 drops of the oil to a water bottle and spray it throughout the greenhouse or veggies.
