1. For Health Purposes
Mint plants aren’t just around the house as a green foliage addition. They can be used to help with your home cleaning and improvement. Housekeepers London taught me the following trick: Use a few drops of essential oil as a natural deodoriser to get your home smelling fresh. No need to buy commercial aromatizers (which by the way are harmful when inhaled). This can equally work on your carpets by scattering dried mint leaves with baking soda and leave for a hour before hoovering. You can also use a few drops of essential oil in a spray bottle with water to spray around the home to combat swarms of summer flies, moths, ants and midges. Placing a rag soaked in peppermint oil near an area will also help to warn off mice you might have as they hate the smell.
So, next time when planting, better consider growing mint.
