How I Cleared A Rat Infested House By Diffusing Essential Oils

If you have ever had a rat infestation in your building you know it can be slightly perturbing to say the least.


My wife and I had bought a building in downtown Toronto, Canada. We found out to our utter dismay there were rats in the walls. I called the city and I was told to cover over their entry ways with wire mesh and to use rat poison.

Which I did to the best of my ability. Trouble was, the rats were tunnelling in underground from the sewer system and I had no idea of where their entrances were. For every rat I poisoned thousands more were available to take its place.

It was a futile effort going nowhere.

Then I thought of diffusing essential oils. And it worked! Within 24 hours they were gone and they never returned. Watch the video.





May there be peace in our hearts.

May there be peace for all humanity.

May there be perfect peace on earth.

  1. hello Dev Khalsa,
    where can I get the diffuser,the pump is easy to get but the nebula or diffuser will be a great help if you can give me some details about some shop.


  2. Smart move with the oils. Never heard of this method before.

  3. I’m writing to thank you very, very much for your Youtube video and advice on how to get rid of rats in a humane way. My partner and I tried the method last night with peppermint oil and diffuser and our unwelcome visitors are gone. They’ve moved on to a new home. We’re so thankful to you. We can now sleep without being woken up in the middle of the night by our furry brothers and sisters. God bless you!

    • Hi Aisha

      I don’t claim to be an expert on rodents. I did get the idea of diffusing essential oils after I found out something similar was done in Europe during the plagues of the middle ages. Anyway it worked for me.

      Click on the next link Young Living is a network marketing company and you need to create an account with them. The only way to sell the highest quality essential oils is through NW marketing because otherwise the lowest price always wins and it is a race to the bottom. I can explain more about that later.

      I used the oil blend called Purification. You will also need a diffuser YL sells them but there are many on the market. NEVER heat an essential oil. It will destroy it.

      In my case the rats were inside the basement walls. I diffused anyway and they were gone overnight. I have kept up diffusing every couple of weeks and that has worked well. For me it was certainly cheaper that a $20,000 renovation.

      Let me know if you have any questions.

  5. Hi there, my name is P-say. I just bought a Condo and moved in a couple of days ago. Last night I heard rat(s) moving around in the ceiling and in the kitchen wall this morning. Unfortunately HOA does not cover inside my Condo. I will use the diffuser and the oils you suggested. I think it will cost less than calling in a pest professional. Do you think it is better if I place the diffuser near or inside the wall? Thank you in advance for your help.

  6. Hi, my name is Kimberly and my home is infested with rats and I’m in need to get rid of them. I have 2 children and I need to know where can I purchase these items please help asap. Thanks for listening and sharing.

    • Hi Kimberly

      All I can tell is what I did. Rats kept coming into our property from the city sewer system. It was useless to use traps or poison because there was an endless supply of them.

      1. All their food sources have to be removed or at least as much as possible.

      2. I used an essential oil diffuser and diffused essential oils into the air. The rats disappeared within 24 hours. There are many types of diffuser on the market. The best use a process called atomization where the oil is NOT heated. The diffusers I use are sold by Young Living.

      3. I have used a number of essential oils and they have all worked. The one I started with is a blend made by Young Living called Purification. I have also used a number of citrus oils, like Lemon and Grapefruit. They have worked too. Just to be safe I continue diffuse once or twice a month for about an hour.

      I have been teaching essential oils for the past 16 years and I use Young Living Essential Oils. They are one of the best sources of therapeutic essential oils on the planet.
