Why do you need neem oil for your plants?

Did you know that Neem oil is an amazing solution if insects, mites, or fungi bother your plants and it can also be used as a leaf shine for your plants?

Neem oil is derived from the seeds of the neem tree through a process called cold press extraction which ensures the highest quality end-product. The main active ingredient in neem oil is azadirachtin.

The azadirachtin in the neem oil acts as a natural pest deterrent, it can be used to manage pests like Aphids, Mealy Bug, Mites, Scale, and Fungus Gnats. It’s completely safe to use around children and pets and won’t harm any beneficial insects like bees, butterflies, and ladybugs.

Did you know that leaves get dusty just like other things at your home indoors? It is not needed for outdoor plants since nature takes care of them. But for your indoor plants, you need to wipe the dust from the foliage so it doesn’t block the sunlight from photosynthesizing to its fullest capacity as well as allowing the foliage to breathe easily!

When to Use Neem Oil: Spray neem oil onto the leaf in the morning or evening when useful bugs are dormant and not feeding or pollinating. Avoid using the spray in the middle of the day when the sun and heat could burn the sprayed foliage.

How to Use our Neem Oil: all you have to do is mix 5 to 7 ml of neem oil into a liter of water and spray it on the foliage and clean it with a cloth. Repeat every two weeks
