Organic Pesticides

Chemical pesticides are not only harmful to plants, but also affect people and animals that come in contact with them. One way to keep our homes free of chemicals is to use organic pesticides such as garlic, peppers, chives, horsetail, house detergents and others. Even if we are not going to consume the plants in our garden, we breathe the micro particles and these pesticides enter our body causing allergies and other disorders. You will find many recipes for organic pesticides on these pages. I hope you try them out and make your life a little healthier.
