DIY Pesticides Using Oils

Keep your plants healthy all summer with these DIY pesticides!

Keep your plants healthy all summer with these DIY pesticides!

Whether you’d like to use essential oils, canola oil, or mineral oil, we’ve got a DIY pesticide remedy for your yard and garden. Because oil smothers insects it’s an effective ingredient in natural pesticides and safe enough to be sprayed directly onto plants. Don’t forget the underside of leaves and be sure to reapply after rain.

  • Mineral Oil: Combine 1 tablespoon mineral oil, 1 quart water, and a few drops liquid soap in a spray bottle (Be sure the product is soap and not a detergent ). Shake the bottle well and spray directly onto leaves to dehydrate insects and their eggs.
  • Canola Spray: Combine 1 tablespoon canola oil with a few drops liquid soap and one quart water in a spray bottle. Shake well to blend oil and water and spray on infested plants.
  • Citrus Oil and Cayenne Pepper: The oil in this DIY pesticide won’t smother insects like the two above but it will deter effectively and naturally! Mix 10 drops citrus essential oil, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and 1 cup warm water in a spray bottle. Shake well to blend the oil and water and spray directly onto affected areas.
  • Eucalyptus Oil: this essential oil is a great natural pesticide for wasps, bees, and flies. Add drops of oil where you find the insects to repel them naturally.

If you’re trying to avoid spending money yet still have DIY pesticides that are natural, take a look at this list. Most of these items may already be in your kitchen!

  • Salt Spray: This is an effective pesticide from spider mites. Mix 2 tablespoons of salt into one gallon of warm water and spray on infected areas.
  • Ground Cloves: Combine 2 tablespoons ground cloves with a quart of water. Insects don’t like the strong scent or taste of cloves and this spray is successful with flying and crawling insects in the garden.
  • Egg Shells: Crushed egg shells are a great deterrent for soft-bodied insects like snails and slugs. This DIY pesticide is a great way to add nutrient to your soil. Crush the shells and sprinkle around your garden.
  • Veggie Spray: In a blender or food processor combine 4 cloves garlic, 1 onion, and 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper and blend until smooth. Add  these ingredients to a spray bottle containing 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap and 1 quart water. Shake well to blend the ingredients and spray onto infested plants.
  • Dead Bugs: The effectiveness of this DIY pesticide is surprising but that doesn’t make it any easier to prepare! Perhaps it’s the anti-cannibalistic instinct of insects but combining ½ cup crushed, dead bugs to 1 pint water provides you with an effective an organic pesticide. It’s organic but not pleasant! Allow the mixture to sit for a few hours or overnight.

The DIY pesticides shared here, and others you can find on the web, that call for hot peppers should be created with caution. Avoid inhaling

Cucumber is an integral part of the great home remedies here!

End of summer gardens sometimes turn out vegetable quantities we’re not equipped to deal with! I’ve seen more cucumbers, peppers, squash and zucchini in the last couple of weeks from friends’ gardens (and have been the thankful recipient of the over-flow) and that’s inspiring this post. Check out Hanna’s Home Remedies with veggies and some of her favorite recipes using them.

Home Remedies with Cucumber

Cucumbers are a delightful vegetable with many medicinal uses. Cucumbers are very good for the skin, especially the complexion. Either eaten or used topically, they cool and heal the skin.

Cucumber satisfies thirst and is a very good diuretic. Cucumber contains a hormone needed by the pancreas for insulin production. Its natural sodium makes stiff joints more limber.

Cucumber juice purifies the lymphatic system, cleans the blood, and relieves jaundice. Drink 4 or 5 cups of freshly pressed cucumber juice for this cleansing process.

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon granulated kelp
  •  2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried or fresh dill
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • Dash of herb salt

Slice cucumber thinly. Blend remaining ingredients together to prepare the marinade and pour over cucumbers. May be stored for several days in the refrigerator and used as desired.

Peppers, especially spicy varieties, are useful for the entire body and have shown success in alleviating depression, chills, rheumatism, and to warm the body. Here are some of Hanna’s remedies with cayenne pepper.

Cayenne benefits the heart and prevents colds and the flu. It improves overall vitality and is not irritating to the system when uncooked.

Cayenne can be rubbed on a toothache and used for swelling and inflammation. When cayenne tincture is rubbed on an arthritic joint and wrapped with flannel cloth overnight, the pain is usually gone in the morning. Learn how to make your own tinctures in this post.

When used as a poultice, cayenne helps draw out impurities imbedded in flesh. It stimulates the nervous system and the digestive system. It is antibacterial and has been found to be helpful for sore throats, laryngitis, hoarseness, and chills.

Cheese Enchiladas

  • 12 mild chiles
  • 8 oz Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • corn meal

Broil chilies 4 to 6 minutes, rotating to brown the skin. Once chilies are roasted and skin is blackened, put them into a bowl and cover. Allow the chilies to sweat in the bowl until cool enough to handle. Remove charred skin, cut a slit down one side of the chilies, clean out the seeds, then stuff with cheese. Coat chilies with corn meal, dip in eggs mixed with salt and fry in hot oil for a few minutes. Place on a baking pan.

  • Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups finely chopped tomatoes
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • dash of sugar

Brown onion and garlic in oil, add additional ingredients. Simmer for 15 to 25 minutes until thickened and pour over enchiladas. Add shredded cheese (optional) and cook for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Hanna didn’t share as many remedies with these vegetables as others but recommended eating them if you’re diabetic and worried with the health of your kidneys and also if you’re concerned with environmental toxins.

While there are a limited amount of home remedies using zucchini and squash, Hanna compiled quite a list of recipes using them. Here’s our favorite:

Raw Zucchini and Red Pepper Salad

  • 2 small unpeeled zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce
  • sprig of rosemary
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ½ clove garlic, minced

Wash and slice the zucchini and red bell pepper into thin slices. Marinate the vegetables in the vinegar, honey, soy sauce, and spices. Drain and arrange on salad greens or eat alone.
