      Oily Garden Repellent

      1/4 cup garlic
      2 teaspoons mineral oil
      2 cups water
      1 ounce oil-based soap (Palmolive works well)

      Combine garlic and 1/4 c. of water in a blender until smooth. Strain (a nylon sock works well), and scrape into a mason jar. Add remaining ingredients. Cap and shake well.

      To use: spritz blend on foliage, as well as roots in the early morning hours when it's a bit cooler outside. Wait 12 hours before watering.
