Natural Vegetable Garden Pesticide


1 Medium Onion (chopped)

4 Cloves of Garlic

20 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil

5 Cayenne peppers

2 Tablespoons Baby Shampoo (per gallon of water) – can be substituted biodegradable liquid soap

1 Gallon of Water


Throw onion, garlic, and cayenne peppers in food processor and pulse. Once it is blended, add in peppermint oil.

Use gallon jug and mix garlic/onion/pepper/mint mixture with water and allow to sit in the sun for one day. Strain the pieces/chunks out and add baby shampoo or biodegradable soap. (Make sure you strain well, so it doesn’t stop up your spray bottle.) Fill jug up the remainder of the container with more water and shake.

Fill spray bottle and spray plants 1-2 times a week.

Wash vegetables after harvesting to avoid having a soapy mouth. 🙂
