It's a given that every time we write about plants at home, at least one person mentions toxicity and pets —which foliage is safe to ingest, which isn't, and how to get a cat to stop eating their favorites. Turns out there is a DIY solution to keep them away from each other, effectively ending the the war of loyalty between your two loves.

Plus, the recipe takes just two ingredients, water and essential oil, and — most importantly — she says that it completely works. After spraying her plants, her cat has completely left them alone.
