Bug Spray For Plants
10 drops Rosemary and Peppermint Essential Oils
8 drops Thyme and Oregano Essential Oils
Add oils to 16 oz spray bottle, fill with water. Shake prior to use. Avoid leaves if possible. Adding a squirt of dish soap will help keep the oils dispersed in the water. I think spraying in the evening is the best way. I’ve seen those darn cutworms destroy a plant overnight!
