Will peppermint oil scare mice away?

I was told that if I put peppermint oil in my basement I will not get mice.

Yes, if it's 100% pure peppermint oil. Grocery store extracts aren't potent enough. Buy it from a natural food store. Put two drops on a cotton ball, and place where mouse evidence has been seen. Mice will avoid the oil, and eventually you won't see them anymore.

This appears to be an old wives' tale, since I can't find any hard evidence to back up that it actually works. It never hurts to try, though.
