Natural Pest Control


  • Mix 1 1/2 tsp. of Neem oil per quart of Beauty Water (1oz/gallon) plus 1/2 tsp. of mild dish soap or natural Castile soap per quart of Beauty Water (2tsp./gal) as an emulsifier. Shake well, Neem oil may solidify at cooler temperatures. Store the oil above 65°F and below 95°F. If thickened, place bottle in hot water for a few minutes prior to mixing your solution.


  • Spray the diluted solution generously on all leaf surfaces, including the undersides. This solution can also be used to water the plants. Use once every 2 to 4 weeks.
  • Apply early morning or late afternoon.
  • Do not apply Neem oil in direct sunlight. Always spot test plants first for sensitivity to sprays.

  • Warning: Keep Neem oil out of reach of children and pets. Do not ingest drink, eat, vaporize or smoke herbs that may have left over Neem residue.
