While you may not mind crossing path with a spider outdoors, having them in your home is another story. Spiders make their way inside for any number of reasons. Sometimes they like a warm place to hide out for the chilly months, sometimes they are in search of food or water, and sometimes they just happen to walk through a crack or an open window.

There are plenty of chemical-laden products on the market to repel and kill spiders but if you have pets or young children, these can be dangerous.  This eco-friendly, essential oil spider spray will safely keep spiders outside where they belong without compromising the health of your family or harming the environment.


  • water
  • 15 drops peppermint essential oil 
  • 5 drops spearmint essential oil
  • 5 drops eucalyptus essential oil 
  • eco friendly dish soap


  • glass spray bottle 
  • cotton balls


  1. Gather the ingredients and equipment 
  2. Pour water into your glass spray bottle 
  3. Add the oils to the bottle. 
  4. Add a squeeze of eco-friendly dish soap to help break apart the oil molecules in the water.
  5. Shake.

Spray your doorways, windowsills, and anywhere spiders like to hide. Use the spray at least once a week for best results. Place the cotton balls sprayed with spider spray in corners of your rooms or places where you feel you have a problem with spiders.
