1. Ants
Ants are small and harmless, but they can be so annoying. Just one little crumb can attract a whole bunch and they seem to spread everywhere. To stop them before they even become a problem, combine water, white vinegar, and essential oil in a spray bottle and mist all doors and baseboards in your home.

2. Cockroaches
If cockroaches send shivers up your spine, you need to make this pesticide before they even think about entering your home. Two cups of water mixed with two tablespoons of tea tree oil should do the trick.
