Peppermint Magic

Do you ever wonder how we get peppermint oil to waft through your home? It’s not concentrated in any one place, but it’s just nicely kind of everywhere. In the summer it’s especially gratifying, since it seems to almost make the space feel cooler.  It’s true that we put peppermint oil in our floor cleaner, but the magic really happens when we apply it to our vacuum filters.  Think of it like the opposite of sucking up a dead cricket.  If you want to try this and don’t know where the filter is on your vacuum, you can get a toilet paper square, put 10 drops of peppermint oil on it, and just vacuum it up.

As a bonus, peppermint oil also lowers anxiety!
