Does Lavender Essential Oil And Lemon Extract Actually Repel Spiders?

Im absolutely petrified of spiders, and ive been gettin about 3 a day in my
House, i know thats not alot but because of my phobia it feels like alot, im always on edge especially at night, i read that lavender essential oil and lemon mixed with water and a spoon of washing up liquid will repel them? Has this worked for anyone?

I'm not so sure about either of these.
But I know for a fact eucalyptus essential oil is a proven insecticide, pesticide, repellent and spider killer. Check this site: http://interestingfacts-today.blogspot.com/2013/04/eucalyptus-essential-oil.html
Note I used it a few days ago to kill a huge spider!!! (size of my palm!!)
I know tea tree oil and citronella oil also act as insect repellents.
Hope this helps :)
