April, I've been petrified of mice all my life. I put the peppermint oil on cotton balls over 3 months ago in addition to the traps and it appears to work because no trap has been tripped and no signs of any mice. :)

I put peppermint oil in a spray bottle bought at the dollar store and spray it on counter tops, in cabinets, etc., and the mice stay away. If you don't have much oil you can mix water with the oil and shake it. it won't separate right away and you can make it last longer.

I've used Peppermint Extract for years and haven't had one mouse since. A couple drops on a ball of cotton. I replenish every 2 or 3 weeks. I never tried essential oils. Not sure which one is cheaper. But not having mice crawling all over my cupboards is a small price to pay!
