How to Make Your Own Neem Oil Pesticide

We were having trouble with aphids in our garden. Neem Oil to the rescue!!


Neem Oil is pressed from the seed of the Neem tree. The oil has a natural dark brown color and a strong smell. Neem oil is full of nutrients and is high in antioxidants. Neem Oil can be used as a natural pesticide and insect repellent that is safe and effective. Neem Oil has been used in agriculture as a non toxic insect control. It also can be used as a skin moisturizer. Because it is so high in vitamin E and fatty acids it penetrates the skin leaving it feeling moisturized - working well to help repair dry and damaged skin. Neem Oil is antibacterial and can be used as the perfect carrier oil for household cleaners and many other things.


Here is the recipe:

All natural garden insecticide 🐜 🐛 🕷

16 oz water 1 tsp liquid dish soap 1 1/2 tsp 100% Neem Oil (purchased from oillife.com)


Mix all ingredients in a glass spray bottle!


This mixture killed the aphids on contact :-)



Happy Gardening!
