Natural Garden Spray


One of the trickiest parts of building and maintaining a healthy garden is keeping pests out. Conventional insecticides contain harmful chemicals that could be dangerous to pets or family members. Luckily, essential oils contain powerful properties that can help keep your garden bug-free, the natural way. This simple DIY uses the power of Peppermint oil to ward off unwanted visitors, keeping your home and garden happy.

 

Ingredients
16 ounce spray bottle
15–20 drops Peppermint oil
Water

 

Instructions

  1. Fill a 16 ounce glass spray bottle with water, leaving an inch or so of room at the top.
  2. Add 15–20 drops of Peppermint oil and shake well before each use.
  3. Apply spray to every plant in your garden, making sure to cover the stems and undersides of leaves as well. Spray again after each rainfall.

 

Note: To help kill weeds, you may substitute eight ounces of water for eight ounces of vinegar in this DIY. If you choose to do so, do not apply directly to garden plants, and use white vinegar only. Apple cider vinegar emits a sweet smell that fruit flies love, and can make a pest problem much worse.
