Natural Peppermint Castile Soap Garden Pesticide SprayTuesday, October 14, 2014
If you love to garden but are having trouble with pests, you don't want to spray your edible garden with chemicals that will soak into your fruits and veggies. This recipe is for a super-easy Peppermint Castile Soap Pesticide spray.
Peppermint Castile Soap Garden Pesticide Spray
Spray directly on your plants wherever the bugs are eating or burrowing. Re-spray every week or after a good rain.
If you find that it's not doing the trick, add in 1 more Tbsp. of the Peppermint soap. If you have persistent bugs, you can add in 1/2 tsp. of powdered cayenne pepper.
Keep in mind that you may get the taste of the peppermint oils or heat from the cayenne pepper in your produce, so start with the smallest amount and work your way up if it's not effective enough.
