I use peppermint oil to mask the scents of my plants. This is done to prevent 'bad insects' from following plant pheromones/odors to targeted plants for their life cycle.
Basically the unwanted bugs find your garden plants by scent.
You are hiding your garden plants with peppermint.

I have found it also beneficial at repelling and managing spider mites and aphids.
It has really been effective on my squash and cucumber plants.

A basic recipe is 1 drop of peppermint oil per 2 ounces of water. This is great for small batches. You can use 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of peppermint oil per gallon of water. Use just enough soap in your batches to help disperse the oil through the water when shaken.

2 ounces of oil is about 1200 drops according to conversion websites.
2 ounces of oil will make 12-24 gallons of spray based on using 1/2 or 1 teaspoon.
Mixed Spray are good for at least 1 week.
Peppermint oil can last 3 years.
