Natural pesticide for your plants

This is a very simple recipe I found a few days ago, a solution that protects plants from pests with a quick preparation time.

The usual pesticides smell awful, not to mention all the harming (for us humans) chemicals they contain! So why not do yourself a favor too and try this safe recipe?

S7005726-1

Pesticide for plants

approx. 3.5 liter water
2 tablespoons of Neem oil
1 / 2 teaspoon Rosemary essential oil
1 / 2 teaspoon Lavender essential oil
(optional 2 tablespoons organic liquid dish detergent)

Mix all of these and store in a spray container. If you only have smaller vessels, decrease amounts of the recipe. Spray the entire plant with this solution, agitating from time to time so the oil and water will not separate.

Use about twice a month if you have pests on your plants, or once per month if there aren’t, but just to make sure they’re keep away from your lovelies.

Keep your plants happy ;)
