This is one of my favorite energy cleansing/room deodorizing sprays. It smells fresh and clean, made with (mostly) natural ingredients, and makes a safe, effective rodent repellant! Here’s how I make it:

Combine 1 Tablespoon of peppermint oil, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon oil and 2 Tablespoons of the salt of your choice into a 12-ounce spray bottle (I got mine from Target, but you can find them in the beauty or cleaning sections in a grocery or superstore. I also got my essential oils from my local health food store.). Fill with moon, rain, snow, or any water of your choice. If you’re not of the witchy persuasion, you can nix the salt and use regular old tap water.

Both oils are known for healing, cleansing, protection, sanctifying a space, psychic development, love, and wealth. Peppermint is known for helping with rest and dreaming (and is the main rodent repellant) while cinnamon helps with clairvoyance and brings good luck. 

Rodents like mice and rats heavily rely on their sense of smell to communicate and navigate their surroundings, so although it’s not too strong for humans the smell of this spray is too overpowering for them and they don’t want anything to do with it. It’s safe to use around pets and children, and makes the house smell clean when it needs a boost.
