So here’s a natural recipe for, get this, PESTICIDE! It’s so amazing because it’s not full of those toxic, poisonous chemicals that we inadvertently breathe in and destroy our immune systems.
These oils are highly effective to protect your plants and trees from insects because, plain and simple, they don’t like these oils! This formulation of oils literally repels the insects without you compromising your health, or the health of your plants. It’s a win-win for all involved!
This is what you need to do:
- 40 drops of Digize (yes, Digize!)
- 40 drops of Peppermint (strong taste)
- 40 drops of Wintergreen (strong odor)
- 40 drops of Citronella (known to repel insects)
As you can see from the photos, fill your spray bottle first with all the oil drops, then continue to fill it with water to mix them all up. Give a gentle shake and spray away! Re-apply as needed.
There you have it, plain and simple! Non-toxic, all natural insect repellant! Happy bug-free Summer (:
