Leaf Shine III - 4oz
“Leaf Shine III” Premium Neem Oil
(Pre-released as Ian’s Neem, same great blend now a part of our new lineup!)
Leaf Shine III is unlike anything else available! We take all the benefits of premium organic cold-pressed Neem Oil pre-emulsified with natural plant derived Saponins (it’s ready to go, no need to mix with messy dish soap!) and top it off with a one of a kind in-house concentrated Neem leaf, bark and seed extract to create the worlds first and only ‘whole plant’ Neem product on the market!
Leaf Shine III is the ultimate Neem product to have in your natural plant care arsenal and includes these amazing botanicals:
- A one of kind water soluble ‘Whole Plant’ Neem extract I derive from Neem leaf, bark & seed! Neem is well known for its pest fighting capabilities but lesser known is how rich it is in Sulphur which has many benefits towards plant health including increased flavor and aroma in your veggie & herb gardens!
- Soapnut berry: High in minerals & loaded with Saponins. Saponins are known to deter pests and trigger the plants natural immune system.
- FRESH Aloe vera: high in hormones, enzymes, minerals, vitamins, saponins & its cellular water.
Shake well before use.
Foliar spray with 10ml / 2x tsp per gallon. 2.5ml or 1/2 tsp for a 32oz spray bottle.
Concentrated formula, a little goes a long way!
Optional: Wipe leaves of houseplants after applying to clean leaves & enhance shine.
Evening application recommended outside, once the sun has passed, avoid times of intense light/heat.
Spot test and wait 24-48hrs before fully applying on known sensitive plants.
4oz Bottle makes 12x gallons of ready to use solution or the equivalent of 48x 32oz spray bottles!
Spray entire plant, tops and bottoms of leaves, stems etc. I spray until the plant is dripping. Wipe tops of leaves to enhance shine and remove dust/debris allowing for more opimal photosynethis. Apply as often as once weekly, as little as once monthly or “as needed” for maintenace.
For pest outbreaks spray 3x over the course of one week. 2x the second week and then resume a normal routine schedule.
If plants will be in the sun or under bright lighting, remove from light while spraying and wait until dry to place back in their spot, or wait until sun has pass or right before indoor lighting is turned off.
Same as above. No need to wipe leaves on outdoor plants. Spray early morning or after sun has passed.
Spray early and often especially when it comes to crops known to very susceptible to pests. Prevention is key! Think about such crops as cucumbers, squashes and melons being very prone to powdery mildew. Build a soil rich in minerals and humus (check out our rock dust and biochar!) to create plants with strong structure and healthy immune system and spray early and often to prevent spores from taking hold on the leaves!
People, Pet, Plant & Planet safe, all our Botanical Tonic & Leaf Shine ingredients are derived from plants and are food or medical grade. This is incredibly important to us! The products and inputs we use in the garden and on the plants in our home can and should be safe even on our own skin! You might recognize some of our botanicals from the ingredients in your skin and hair care products and I think it is by no mistake that my research has proven to show that many of the plant produced compounds we find beneficial to human health are also benefical to plant health!
