It’s so disheartening when you spend time caring for your plants, only to have bugs wreak havoc on them.

All you need is a couple of household ingredients to make your own natural bug spray for plants.
What’s in Homemade Bug Spray for Plants?

How Do You Make Bug Spray for Plants?
Add the Castile soap, lavender and water to a clean spray bottle and shake well before each use.
To use, spray plants liberally with the lavender Castile soap mixture and leave it…no rinsing necessary.
