Freedom from Foul Odors
I Must Garden Deer Repellents are pleasantly scented, making application easier and more enjoyable than ever! Many repellents on the market smell bad – very bad. We’ve heard stories where people would actually get sick after spraying…or they smelled so bad, they had to shower every time they sprayed. With I Must Garden Deer Repellent, you won’t be driven out of your own yard and your neighbors won’t resent you every time you spray. It’s no wonder I Must Garden Deer Repellent is the top-selling deer repellent in hundreds of stores. Use our Dealer Locator to find a dealer near you.
Mint Scent and Spice Scent
I Must Garden offers two distinctively scented and equally effective repellents - Mint Scent and Spice Scent. Both deer repellents contain eggs and garlic - substances that by themselves repel deer. However, I Must Garden takes repellency to an even higher level by adding botanical oils from plants that deer won’t eat - plants such as peppermint, lemongrass, cinnamon, and clove. Not only do the botanical oils from these plants make our repellents smell so much better, but these natural oils increase the effectiveness and longevity of the repellents.
The Mint Scent Deer Repellent blends peppermint and lemongrass oils that effectively and refreshingly repel deer. Botanical oils are also effective at repelling many insects, so while you’re spraying for deer, you’re also helping control damaging insect infestations.
The Spice Scent Deer Repellent has a fresh cinnamon-clove smell that gardeners love and provides effective year-round control against deer damage. As with the Mint Scent repellent, clove and cinnamon oils have insecticidal, as well as repelling properties. Cinnamon oil also has anti-fungal properties. While the botanical oils used in the I Must Garden Deer Repellents are chosen for maximum effectiveness against deer, it’s nice to know there are other benefits.
Some gardeners prefer one scent over the other and have been using their favorite I Must Garden Deer Repellent to protect their plants for years. Other gardeners like to rotate between our two equally effective and pleasantly scented deer repellents. We’ve also heard gardeners tell us that they mix the Mint Scent with the Spice Scent for a third unique scent – and that’s perfectly ok to do!
No matter which repellent you use, it’s good to know that there are no poisons, harmful chemicals or toxic glues in our products. All of our repellents are safer to use around children and pets* and are completely biodegradable and environmentally friendly.

*when used as directed
I Must Garden is proud to use ingredients regarded as safe by the EPA.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
