Garden Tea for Healthier Plants


Think of essential oils as preventative medicine for your garden.  They help build strong plants that are able to fight off bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew.  Using essential oils in the form of a garden tea will help increase the yield and make the fragrance and flavor of the flower/fruit more pungent.

Here is a printable chart listing which essential oils can be used in a homemade garden tea and for which plant.

Place 2 1/2 cups of water into a pot and add 8 drops essential oil.  Bring to a boil and than quickly turn off stove and remove pot from heat.  Allow to cool and than add 2 Tbsp. of mixture to 1 gallon water and you are ready to use, (store the remainder in an air-tight container for later).

  1. Do you know what essential oils do you use for berry trees/bushes? i.e. blueberries, strawberries, mulberries, blackberries.
