How to Use Peppermint & Rosemary Oil in the Garden: Recipes, Insects & How it Works DIY Ep-5

Peppermint & Rosemary Oils can be used to repel insects and pests from your vegetable garden. I have found them extremely effective in reducing spider-mite, aphid and white-fly damage. I noticed it helped reduce the white moth’s time in my garden. The one that lays the ‘Green Cabbage Looper’ eggs. The video explains why oils work, how to mix the oils, how to use them and a spraying strategy. The goal is to reduce damage and infestation.
