You can effectively use Peppermint oil to repel Mice from your home and other areas. Simply place a drop of two on a cotton ball and place in the area you wish to clear. Combine with spearmint oil for a particularly effective blend. The scent is so strong the mice cannot stand it and will (theoretically) run away from the smell.
Be careful not to use too much or you may harm the mice if they ingest it. Be very careful using any neat essential oil if you have children or pets around.
fresh and dried mint also keeps mice away. If using dried mint, you can create small sachets to put near entry points in your home. To make the sachets, use an old pair of medium denier tights and cut into squares. Pour dried mint onto the square and gather up at the corners, secure using a piece of string or elastic band.

I have a fragrance oil warmer and want to use my peppermint oil in it. I tried it one day and...the oil evaporated very quickly. The oils that came with the warmer do not go as quickly. What can I add to the peppermint oil to make it last longer? BTW, the house smelled wonderful!
